Hi all,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I am meant to find the total impedance across the circuit but am having trouble with one section of the circuit. This section comprises of 2 resistors and 1 capacitor in parallel.

The two resistors are 8 ohms each and the capacitor is 3 ohms. So the process is meant to be:

Z = ( 1/8 + 1/8 + 1/j3) ^(-1)

and the answer is meant to be: 1.44 + j1.92

I know it is really simple but I cant wrap my head around it at the moment and it's driving me insane! Any help much appreciated.
