I know how to do this problem, but I am having a difficult time figuring out the distance . I thought that from wire 1 to P2 the distance is 45 cm, and the distance from wire 2 to the p2 the distance is 35 cm. However, I believe I am wrong, can someone please explain o me where my mistake it .
Question: Two long, straight parallel wires are 10.0 cm apart and carry 3.80 A currents in the same direction. Find the magnitude of the magnetic field at point P2 , 35.0cm to the right of P1.

I am not certain of the orientation of the wires and P2, are they all in the same plane? Where is P1?

they are in the same plane
The current are both out of the plane.
