Open Question: Two equal point charges of 5 µC are on the horizontal axis. One charge is at -10 cm, the other is at +10 cm.?

These two charges don't move, they are STUCK, take the potential to be zero at infinity.
Find the potential at the following coordinates: (0,0) cm, (0,10)cm & (0,20)cm.
What will happen to a proton released from rest at the origin?
