    Let
    x——————–> weight of an object on earth
    y——————-> weight of an object on Earth’ s moon

    we know that
    x=6y
    Part A) if x=42 pounds
    y=x/6————– > 42/6= 7 pounds
    the answer part A) is
    if it weight 42 pounds on Earth the weight of an object on Earth’ s moon is 7 pounds

    Part B)  An object would weight 6 pounds on Callisto . What would it weight on Earth’s moon?

    The gravitational forces existing on Jupiter’s moon called Callisto are similar to those of the Moon
    therefore
    the answer is
    An object would also weight 6 pounds on  Earth’s moon
