is it bigger? cuz the gravitational force of attraction is pulling them together?

So the force is given by F=GMM/r2. So as r increases what happens to F?

ooo it gets smaller beacuase there is a larger number diving the GMM. so then if the mass gets bigger, but the distance between gets smaller, then the force will increase right?
