If you double the distance between to masses, the gravitational force between them would:____

If you triple the distance between two masses, the gravitational force between them would be _______ the original force

If you Halve the distance between two masses the gravitational force between them would be ________ the original force

2. Relevant equations

None I guess?

3. The attempt at a solution

During this lab I found the inverse relationship between the distance and the gravitational force.

I think that that means the gravitational force would quarter if you double the distance between two masses. I'm not sure at all though.

PS: How do you straighten a graph that looks like this
