What is the acceleration (in m/s^2) of gravity on the surface of the moon?

There are two parts to this problem:


a). What is the acceleration (in m/s^2) of gravity on the surface of the moon? (I am not given mass or the radius)


b). What is the acceleration (again in m/2^s) of gravity on the surface (or outer limit--> not sure what that means...) of Venus? The mass is 4.88e24 kg and its radius is 6.06e6 m.


I know these are several equations ((FG=(GM1M2)/(r^2), a=v^2/r, and v=rw)) that have to be used but I am not sure which one to start with so that I can use that answer and substitute it into another equation.
