(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

Two charges of value +4C and -16C are seperated by a distance of 3m.

At what spot along the line is the electric field is zero?

2. Relevant equations

I tried using the equation E = Q / 4pieE(o)r^2

3. The attempt at a solution

I get a quadratic equations which cannot be solved, please help me out. It is very urgent.
