Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Mass doesn't change. It would be same mass. However if you mean weight, the weight would be 120 kg in moon.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0You're right in that the mass wouldn't change, @abdul shabeer, but wrong about the weight  it would decrease, not increase, to 1/6 of the weight on Earth or about 12kg.
