That's exactly right.

At points exactly equidistant from the wires the two fields are the same. But in one place they exactly cancel and at the other they exactly double.
There's a thin line of exactly zero magnetic field in the narrow angle between the wires.

That's what the question was all about. Nice eh? very elegant.

Awesome, thank you so much!

It was a very tricky question, I guess it didn't help that I didn't understand the direction of the magnetic field. The good news is, I'm starting to get the concept quite well after working on this problem!

Thanks again!
