To determine
The electric flux through the surface.

Explanation

From Gauss’s law, the magnitude of flux is given by,

ϕE=qnetε0 (I)

  • qnet is the net charge enclosed by the Gaussian surface.
  • ε0 is the permittivity of free space.

Conclusion:

The net charge enclosed by the Gaussian surface is,

qnet=(3C)+(5C)+(2
