A 4.0μC charge is situated at the origin of anxycoordinate system. What is the potential difference between the points x=4.0m and y=2.0m because of this charge?

2. Relevant equations

V = k X q/r

3. The attempt at a solution

So i got the absolute value of the voltage to be 9.0 X 10^{3.}Howver how do you know if the voltage is negative or positive?
