(b) Find the electric field 39.6 cm from the center of the charge distribution.

Round your answer to three significant figures.

...shouldn't the electric field at this point be given by E = k * (q / r ^ 2), where q is 3.91 x 10 ^ -6 C and r is 0.396 m? Same as a point charge right?

It wants the answer in megaNewtons / Coulomb; I give 2.24 MN/C and it's wrong? Why?

Thanks for any input.
