At what distance about Earth would a satellite have a period of 125 min?

G=6.673x10^-11

T=125 Min

Mass=5.97x10^24

Radius of Earth=6.38*10^6

2. Relevant equations

T=2pi*Square root of (R^3/constant*mass)

3. The attempt at a solution

125=2*3.14*Square root of ((6.38x10^6)^3+R^3/6.673x10^-11*5.97x10^24)

I got a negative #.... Which i know is wrong!
