If you were three times as far from the center of Earth as you are now the pull of Earths gravity on you would be what?
The forces of gravity between two objects fall off as the square of the distance between them. If you were three times as far from the center of the Earth as you are now, then the forces of gravity between you and the Earth would be 1 / (3^2) = 1/9 of what they are now. Putting it simply, your weight would be 1/9 of what it is down here on the surface.

How does a planet's gravity vary with its mass?
The gravity of a planet is directly proportional to its mass, and inversely proportional to the square of the distance from the center of mass. For the gravity on the surface of the planet, the distance is just the planet's radius. Thus, if a planet has three times the mass, it has three times the gravity. If you are three times as far away, the gravity decreases by a factor of nine.
