Hey I am studying for a test, These are one the questions. Anyone know how to solve this?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Two point charges repel each other with a force of 2.0 x 10^-9 N. One of the point charges carries twice the amount of charge carried by the other. When the two charges are moved 0.1 m farther apart from their initial position, the force reduces to 5.0 x 10^-9 N. What are the charges and what was the initial separation between them?
