## Homework Statement

What is the equivalent capacitance of the four capacitors in the figure below? Take C1 = 2.6 µF, C2 = 4.1 µF, C3 = 3.9 µF, and C4 = 1.1 µF.

## Homework Equations

Cequiv of capacitor in series = (1/C1)+(1/C2)+(1/C3)+(1/C4)

Then take the reciprocal of the answer.

## The Attempt at a Solution

I actually happen to know that the answer is 0.705 but I can't figure out how exactly to get that answer. I have tried everything from plugging the numbers directly into the equation above and almost every combination I could think of.

It's frusterating because I think it's a simple question but I can not get the right answer using my methods. If anyone can help that would be great, thank you.
