The point charges in the figure have the following values: q1 = +3.7 µC, q2 = +6.3 µC, q3 = -0.89 µC. Suppose that the magnitude of the net electrostatic force exerted on the point charge q2 is 0.81 N. Find the distance d in centimeters.

Diagram:

2. Relevant equations

F=(K*q1*q2) / d^2

3. The attempt at a solution

this is what i ended up doing

i'm pretty sure i did the math right, i got 93.86 cm as my final answer. does that look right?
