I know this problems must have something to do with Kepler's laws, b/c its out of that section of the book. But I'm guessing you would have to find the tangential velocity first, or at some point?

meaning that the relationship between period and radius is not linear... if you want that ratio, then period would have to increase faster than radius

and, well the path of a planet is linearly related to radius, so... if period increases faster, that means that the farther you get out there,

the slower you go...
