    Nearly 81 moons will be required to equate the mass of moon to the mass of earth.

    Step-by-step explanation:

    Mass of earth is 5.972*10^24 kg.  

    Mass of the moon is 7.36*10^25 g = 7.36*10^22 kg

    As mass of the Earth is given as 5.972 * 10^24 kg and mass of the moon is given as 7.36 * 10^22 kg, then the number of moons required to make it equal to the mass of earth can be calculated by taking the ratio of mass of earth to moon.

     Mass of Earth = Number of moons * Mass of Moon

    Number of Moons = Mass of Earth/Mass of moon

    Number of moons = 5.972 * 10^24/7.36*10^22= 81 moons.

    So nearly 81 moons will be required to equate the mass of moon to the mass of earth.
