1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
two semi infinite grounded conducting planes make a 60 degree angle. One plane along the positive x-axis. There is a charge Q at point (m,n) located closer to the plate running along the x-axis than the other. what would a diagram look like with all image charges and angles labeled along with the charges magnitude.

2. Relevant equations
don't believe you'll need any I have theta1 + theta2 = 60 degrees

3. The attempt at a solution
I have the charges. I can't figure out there angles though. there would be a reflection charge across y and x and 2 diagonal charges. Not sure on the angle though

That's too vague for me to know what you have so far.
Try this: where would all the images be if instead this were an object reflected in two plane mirrors at sixty degrees? Can you assign charges at those points to produce zero potential at all points on the mirrors?
