Electric Field Due to Parallel Uniformly Charged Sheets

Two very large parallel sheets are 5.00 cm apart. Sheet A carries a uniform surface charge density of -8.40 uC/m^2 , and sheet B , which is to the right of A , carries a uniform charge of -12.4 uC/m^2 . Assume the sheets are large enough to be treated as infinite.

Find the magnitude of the net electric field these sheets produce at a point 4.00 cm to the right of sheet A .

E net = ______ N/C
