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

1st terms = -e and positive e separated by d.

2nd terms = Two units of charge e form a system of 3 point charges -e, 2e, and e (all d apart).

The next terms are formed by changing the sign of the charge and then moving by one unit length.

2. Relevant equations

E=q(1)q(2)/d^2

3. The attempt at a solution

The actual problem is finding the E-field of the distribution of charges. However, I can't get past the wording of how it's telling me to set up the 3rd charge distribution. What exactly is the pattern here?
