Mars rotates on its axis once every 24.8 hours.What is the speed of a geosynchronous satellite orbiting Mars?

I thought I could use the equation:

v= the square root of Gm/r

however I've realized that the hight of the satellie's orbit has not been given so I cannot use this eqation.

If anyone can help me with this that would be great

Thanks!
