Three negative point charges lie along a line as shown in the figure.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

figure: http://tinyurl.com/7xppvc8

Find the magnitude and direction of the electric field this combination of charges produces at point , which lies 6.00 from the charge measured perpendicular to the line connecting the three charges.

ATTEMPT:

i think the magnitude is to the right, away from the -2.00 uC charge. can someone verify this? i am currently trying to find the magnitude, but i will post it when finished.
