3.1E-6 is from series. so you add them by 1/C and the answer is 1/c. so for the first one i did 1/8.6E-6 + 1/4.8E-6 = 1/C where C is 3.1E-6
4.1E-6 is also from series. i did 1/6.2E-6 + 1/11.8E-6 = 1/C where C is 4.1E-6.
7.6E-6 is parallel so you just add them. i added 4.1E-6 to 3.5E-6
i did this in three steps. i found C from the first two as a series. then i found c from the top two as a series. then i used my answer from the top two and the lower capacitator as a parallel network. so in the last calculation i did 4E-6. AH! there is my mistake. before i had my old...
