Solution

F=Gm1m2r2F1r2
r()F()
F=GMsMer2
F=GMsMe(3r)2=GMsMe9r2
F=F9
% change (FFF)×100
=⎜ ⎜ ⎜F9FF⎟ ⎟ ⎟×100
=89×100
= -89%.
(Negative sign indicates that the force is decresed by 89%.)

So, the if the distance between sun and earth is increased by three times the attarction force is decreased by 89%.
