  1. Electric potential is a scalar, not a vector. The potential at the middle due to one charge is kq/r, and due to six charges, then 6kq/r
    The solution then is to find the distance r to the center. Because all the corners are the same distance, consider a circle..

    interior angle=360/6=60deg
    two sides r, third side x, other two angles 60 deg also, so all sides are x.

    potential=6kQ/x
