    And Henry's portfolio is composed of three securities with the following characteristics:

    Security A with Beta 1.20, Standard Deviation random error term of 5%, proportion .30

    Security B with beta 1.05, Standard Deviation random error term of 8%, proportion .50

    Security C with beta .90, Standard Deviation random error term of 2% , proportion .20

    If standard deviation of the market index is 18%, what is the total risk of the portfolio?
