Vb=(Cb/Ca+Cb)V

I mean Vb=(Cb/(Ca+Cb))V

It depends on the initial condition.... if both capacitors were discharged to 0V at first, and then one side is charged to Vcc, then the answer would be Vb=(Ca/(Ca+Cb))Vcc

Vcc---Ca----Cb----gnd

However since there was no initial conditions given , the middle voltage could be anything if the capacitors are ideal
