(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

What is the net electric field intensity at the origin due to two charges Q1= 2[tex]\mu[/tex]C at (x=3,y=4) and Q2 = -10[tex]\mu[/tex]C at (x=6,y=-8). And where should a third charge of magnitude 5 [tex]\mu[/tex]C be placed so the net electric field at the origin is zero?

2. Relevant equations

E=KQ/R[tex]^{2}[/tex] [tex]\widehat{r}[/tex]

3. The attempt at a solution

I have found the first part of the question to be E= 3236[tex]\widehat{i}[/tex]-10069[tex]\widehat{j}[/tex] but I am not sure how you would find out were to place the third charge. Please help
