Two point charges are placed on the x axis. The first charge, q1= 8.00 , is placed a distance 16.0m from the origin along the positive x axis; the second charge, q2= 6.00 , is placed a distance 9.00m from the origin along the negative x axis.

Calculate the electric field at point A, located at coordinates (0m , 12.0 m).

Give the x and y components of the electric field as an ordered pair. Express your answer in newtons per coulomb to three significant figures.
