(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

for this problem i found all of the separate capacitence for each capacitor, each potential difference, and each charge on each capacitor but im not sure how to get the total energy stored for the whole system. does anybody know the correct equation

2. Relevant equations

dunno

3. The attempt at a solution

i tried using the total capacitance of the system and the total voltage.. to no avail
