4 Cans & 3 Switches

If the circuit in the diagrams has four lights at 100W I calculated the current at 100W*4/110V = ~3.5A, correct?

And if correct is there any reason why I can't run 14/3 wire through the switches and 14/2 from the last switch to the lights?

#14 cable is only permitted on a 15 amp circuit. If this circuit is on a 15 amp breaker then you can use #14 cable.

Do not PM with questions that can be asked in a forum. I will not respond.
