(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

A charge of -1.9 × 10-9 C is at the origin and a charge of 9.4 × 10-9 C is on the x-axis at x = 3 m. At what two locations on the x-axis (xpositive, xnegative) is the potential zero?

xpositive = m

Xpositive = .5m

v=kq/x + (k(5Q/3-x))to solve for this value,

.5

xnegative = m

I'm lost on the second part of the problem which we need to calculate the X negative

If someone could help me set this equation up I would be very appreciative :)
