In the figure below, four particles are fixed along an x axis, separated by distances d = 4.00 cm. The charges are q1 = +2e, q2 = -e, q3 = +e, and q4 = +5e, with e = 1.60 × 10-19 C. What is the value of the net electrostatic force on (a) particle 1 and (b) particle 2 due to the other particles?

q1 is at the origin and the rest of the particles are to the right a distance d from one another. therefore the order of particles is q1,q2,q3,q4 each with a distance d in between.
Got part a to be 5.596E-26 but i don't know how to do b. please help
