    Well...Weight is a force, so we have \[\vec W = m \vec g\] so here the m is mass, and g is the gravitational field. So since you already have the answer...notice that weight depends on the gravity, so if the gravity of the planet changes the weight will to, and mass will be constant (stays the same).
