electric fields *easy

A charged particle is at the origin of coordinates. The
particle produces an electric field of 4 kN/C at the point
with position vector 36 cm. At what location does the field
have the value 1 kN/C?

Ans: 72 cm

Could someone please explain to me what equation I would use and how I would approach this problem? Thank you.
