# Is the electric potential positive or zero in this case?

I have recently been learning about Electric Potential, and I came across this problem:

"If we have a charge of -q and a charge of +q, find the Electric Potential at a point P such that P is the midpoint of the line segment connecting the Negative and Positive Charges".

Intuitively, I thought that the answer would just be 0, because just looking at the picture it seems like the sum of the Electric Potential will be 0 because the -q charge will "cancel out" the +q charge. However, I'm a little unsure of this, because I've also learned that Electric Potential is "a scalar quantity". In this case, the Electric Potential would be positive?

Could someone confirm if Electric Potential is vector or scalar quantity, and also confirm the correct answer to this problem for me?
