Step 1

Let distance between each gap be represented by a and the charges are as shown

Step 2

The electric potential at any point by a single charge is given as

where Q is the charge on the body and r is its distance from that point. The potential die to multiple bodies is simply given as the sum of potential due to each one of them at the given point.

Now,
