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

What are the magnitude and direction of the electric force on the +2.0x10^-6 charge shown in the diagram (included in the attachment)?

2. Relevant equations

F = kq1q2/r^2

3. The attempt at a solution

I used the Ep = kq1q2/r^2 equation and plugged in the numbers but didn't get any of the provided answers and I was just wondering what I was doing wrong?

What I did was:

F= kq1q2/r^2

F= (9.00x10^9)l(-6.0x10^-6)(-7.0x10^-6)l/(4.0)^2 [note:l lhere means absolute value]

F= 0.23625

the answer I got was that, but it matches up with none of the provided answers?
