Consider the following figure.

(a) Find the electric potential at points a and b for charges of +3.5 nC and -7.6 nC located as shown in the figure.
Va= _____ V
Vb= _____ V
(b) What is the potential difference ΔV for a trip from a to b?
(c) How much work must be done by an external agent to move a point charge of +1.50 nC from a to b?
The Attempt at a Solution
I tried multiplying the distance by the charge, which was wrong. Then I tried taking (1/4 pie epsilon not) (charge/r) which was wrong. I don't know what to do, can you please help?
