1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
how do i calculate the total capacitance of the image attached, as there is series and parallel capacitor in the same circuit




3. The attempt at a solution

i did try using 1/8uF + 8uF but then could not get the answer. can someone please help me through this. thanks

First add the 2 and the 6 microfard capacitors together in parallel.
Then when you have the value, add it in series to the other one.
