    Solve for m2

    Solve for m2.

    F = (G)(m1)(m2) divided by d^2

    F=\frac{Gm_1m_2}{d^2}

    First, if you're solving for m_2, multiply both sides by the denominator, d^2:

    Fd^2=Gm_1m_2

    Can you try to get m_2 by itself?

    Is the answer [F(d^2)]/Gm1 = m2?

    \frac{Fd^2}{Gm_1}=m_2 is correct!
