Capacitors in series:

$\overline{){{\mathbf{C}}}_{\mathbf{e}\mathbf{q}}{\mathbf{=}}\frac{{\mathbf{C}}_{\mathbf{1}}{\mathbf{C}}_{\mathbf{2}}}{{\mathbf{C}}_{\mathbf{1}}\mathbf{+}{\mathbf{C}}_{\mathbf{2}}}}$

In parallel:

$\overline{){{\mathbf{C}}}_{{\mathbf{eq}}}{\mathbf{=}}{{\mathbf{C}}}_{{\mathbf{1}}}{\mathbf{+}}{{\mathbf{C}}}_{{\mathbf{2}}}}$

C1 and C2 are in parallel,

###### Problem Details

A combination of series and parallel connections of capacitors is depicted in the figure.

C1 = 18 μF

C2 = 6.09 μF

C3 = 1.85 μF

Find the total capacitance of the combination of capacitors, in microfarads.
