Two tankers of equal mass attract eachother with a force of 3.5 x 10(to the power of 3)N. If their centres are 85m apart, what is the mass of each tanker?

mass of 2 tankers = ?

F= 3.5 x 10(to the power of 3)N

r= 85m

G = 6.67 x 10(to the power of -11) N.m(squared)/kg(squared)

2. Relevant equations

F = G x m1 x m2

r(squared)

3. The attempt at a solution

How do i attemp this question? Please help me.
