How is it negative???

Two capacitors of capacities \(1 \mu F\) and \(C \mu F\) are connected in series and the combination is \(80 \mu C\), the energy stored in the capacitor of capacity C in \(\mu J\) is

If it is \(80 \mu F\) then problem is incorrect since when 2 capacitor are connected in series, net capacitance is less than smallest of the individual capacitance.

So it can be concluded the question is incorrect even if it is interpreted as the combination has \(80 \mu C\) charge.

I thought it was a typo I'll try taking it micro coulombs

80 microcoloumb is charge on capacitors , what is eq. Capacitance
