Homework Help: Question about electric potential at a point

  1. Nov 14, 2015 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    Three equal charges are equidistant from point Z. What is the electric potential at point Z?

    2. Relevant equations
    V = kq/r

    3. The attempt at a solution
    Because the charges are equal and equidistant from point Z, would I find the electric potential by: V = (3kq)/r ?

    Thank you!
