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

Two charges are 1m apart, the first charge is -2.5microC and the second on is 6 microC, determine the point(other than infinity) at which the electric field is zero.

2. Relevant equations

E=(1/4PI(8.854*10^(-12)))*(q/r^2)

3. The attempt at a solution

ok maybe i am just really overthinking the problem at hand. but for my first attempt, i simply let E=0 and set it equal to the rest of the equation(with r=1) the thing is, i do not know how to find the point. (i'm assuming i am solving for q but i don't think that is right) I just do not know how to solve for the point
