Can someone please explain to me why the gravitational force decrease when the distance increases?

If the you look at the formula for calculating the force of gravity;
F= (GMm)/R^2
Where;
F- force of gravity
G- gravitational constant
M- mass of one object
m- mass of the other object
R- distance between the objects

We can automatically see that there will be a change in the gravitational force as the distance between the two objects is changed
