** Edit **

The assumption is that the point you are considering is on a line perpendicular to the wires.

The point does not coincides. Do I still add to get resultant or get 2 answers for 2 diff. points?

No, it's a single point. Otherwise the question makes no sense. (Hint: Draw circles of appropriate radius about each wire. See where they intersect.)It's 2 different points: one at 15 cm away from 30 A wire; the other at 25 cm away from 40 A wire.

The point does not coincides.
