hi

no, they are two separate households, on your i864 you put your household, on their i864 he puts his household, including the beneficiary

now if he needs to includes his wife's income, to combine income because he hasn't enough, then he will file the i864 and his wife the i864A, to combine incomes

i dont know if it makes a difference but i live with them.he makes around 32,000 a year..im not sure why he added my step other than the fact he petitioned her a few years back but under i129.he would just fill it out with his info and then have my wife listed as who is petitioning for?

No it doesn't matter if you live with them. A household in this manner is calculated via taxes and responsibility for the I-864 and minor children. He needs to add your step mother because a) unless she's a USC he is still liable for the I-864 for her but mostly b) she's his wife.

Your father's household count would be himself, his wife, any minor children, anyone else he's petitioned who is still in the USA and not a USC and hasn't' worked 40 work credits (approx 10 years), and your wife, the beneficiary of this petition. (I'm going to assume 3)

Your household count is you and your wife unless you have some children somewhere.
