Capacitors in parallel is equal to resistors in series. Therefore, the capacitance have to be added up or can be multiplied by 3 since each capacitor has the same value of capacitance. 3*0.5 uf= 1.5uf.

Description : Three capacitors 15µf, 18µf and 12µf are connected in a circuit. Find equivalent capacitance when they are connected in – 1) Series 2) Parallel

Answer : Ans: Value of equivalent capacitance: Given: C1= 15μF, C2=18 µF, C3= 12µF  i)For Series combination of capacitors: 1/Cs = (1/C1)+( 1/C2) +(1/C3) = (1/15)+( 1/18)+( 1/12) 1/Cs = 0.0666+0.0555+0. ... Cs = 4.868 µF   ii) For parallel combination of capacitors: Cp = C1 + C2 + C3 = 15 +18+ 12 = 45 µF

Description : How will the total capacitance change, when two capacitors are connected in parallel?

Answer : The  capacitance  will  increase  if  connected  in  parallel  because  it  will  be  like  you  have  increase  surface  area  of  a  plate  by  connecting  it  to   another.
