Adding capacitors. Series or parallel? Answered

I was building a curcuit and had no 0.05uf capasitators so I decided to use five 0.01 capastators. Should I wire them in series or parallel?
Also they are ceramic.
Thanks for any help. David.

In parallel is correct,  to make an equivalent o.05uF capacitor.

In series the equivalent capacitance would be o.002uF.
