But we know E-field decreases by factor of R

^{2}, so as you increase in distance, area must increase by R

^{2}in order to maintain the same magnitude of flux.

But what about in this situation? https://imgur.com/a/c2KS8

The areas penetrated by the E-Field have the same magnitude, but the E-fields are of different strength because E-Fields decrease by R

^{2}. So E dot A is different at each area, so flux in this situation cannot be 0.
