I see that this thread has been moved here to the Homework section, hence no formatting template. In future please remember that homework and homework-like questions should be posted in the Homework areas of Physics Forums.

Yes, we can help you, but you'll have to show some effort first.

What formula(s) pertain to electric potential energy? What information from the problem statement is important?
