The mass of the Earth is 81 times the mass of the Moon.

The radius of the Moon is 0.27 times the radius of the Earth.

In this exercise, we know: the relation of mass Earth-Moon and the relation of radius Earth-Moon.

Let´s go to calculate the variation in our weight on Moon surface.

- We calculate our weight in the Earth surface.
- We calculate our weight in the Moon surface.
- We divide two equations to obtain the solution.
