Hi! I need help with the following problem:

**1. Figure displays a 12 V battery and three uncharged capacitors of capacitances C1=4μF , C2=6μF and C3=3μF. The switch is thrown to the left until C1 is fully charged then it is thrown to the right.What is the final charge of each capacitor?****3. initial charge of 1 is q=C1V=48μC**

Switch thrown to the right:

q2=q3, V1=V2+V3, V=q/c and q1+q2+q3=48C

From these equations i found q1=24,q2=q3=12

The answer in the back of the book says that q1=32,q2=q3=16

Where is the mistake?Switch thrown to the right:

q2=q3, V1=V2+V3, V=q/c and q1+q2+q3=48C
