Below is the recommendation and reference answer for question "In the figure find the equivalent capacitance of the combination. Assume that C1 = 8.05 µF, C2 = 5.48 µF, and C3 = 4.81 µF.?" It was collected and sorted by the editor of this site but not sure the answer is entirely accurate.

c₁ and c₂ are in series
1/cᵪ = 1/c₁ + 1/c₂

1/cᵪ = 1/8.05 + 1/5.48
1/cᵪ = 0.3067053543
cᵪ = 3.260458241


cᵪ and c₃ are in parallel
C = cᵪ + c₃
C = 3.260458241 + 4.81
C = 8.070458241

C ≈ 8.07 µF <––––––
