Planet X has a mass 8 times that of Earth and the acceleration due to gravity at its surface is 19.6 m/s2. The radius of the planet x compared to earth is:

The answer is 2times bigger

2. Relevant equations

Fg = gm1m2 / r^2

3. The attempt at a solution

Is earths gravity 9.8 and the gravity of planet x is 19.6.

Where would I put these values in ?
