The force of gravity varies by the **square **of the **inverse **(or ** RECIPROCAL**) of the distance.

A) If the distance is multiplied by 3, the force between them is multiplied by 1/9.

B) If the distance is one half of the original distance, the force between them is multiplied by 2.

So **(a) is 1/9** and** (b) is 2**.

If you need any further help, feel free to message me.

Those answers were not correct. I submitted that answer and A) should have been 0.111 and B) should have been 4.09/15/21
