## Homework Statement

Two point charges lie along the y-axis. A charge of [itex]q_1 = -9.0 \times 10^{-6}\;C[/itex] is at [itex]y = 6.0m[/itex], and a charge of [itex]q_2 = -8.0 \times 10^{-6}\;C[/itex] is at [itex]y = -4.0m[/itex]. Locate the point (other than infinity) at which the total electric field is zero.

## Homework Equations

[tex]E = \frac{k|Q|}{d^2}[/tex]

## The Attempt at a Solution

All I know is that it's between the two points. Basically, I don't know how to set this problem (or any like it) up. I'm not asking for the answer, just a nudge in the right direction.
