    I'm stuck on fourteen. Without the charge's coordinates how can I calculate the electric force on the charge?

    The charge is at the origin, coordinates 0,0. (Hint: Problem #14 uses the results of prob #12.)

    Didn't take notice of the word "origin". Anyway, you don't need to the answers from #12 because F= k*q1*q2/r^2 and you find force of the charges on the origin charge and take the magnitude of it.
