Explain point charge - electric field, Physics

What are the magnitude and the sign of a point charge that experiences a force of  0.48 N east when placed in an electric  field of 1.6 x 105 N/C west?

Because the force exerted on the charge is opposite the direction of the electric field, the charge must be negative.
