A Satellite orbiting at a radius of 16,000km makes one complete orbit in 5.6 hours. What would the radius of the orbit be if it made one orbit in 24 hours?

Johannes Kepler showed that for a satellite in orbit, the square of the time for one orbit is proportional to the cube of the  orbits radius. A Satellite orbiting at a radius of 16,000km makes one complete orbit in 5.6 hours. What would the radius of the orbit be if it made one orbit in 24 hours?
