# Variance of total repair costs in 2012 for fixing cars after accidents

The cost of fixing car after an accident can be broken into 2 components: parts X, and labor Y. For 2010, you are given that E(x)=1,250, E(X^2)=1,800,000 and E(Y)=350, E(Y^2)=250,000. Var(X+Y)=875,000

For 2011 the cost of parts will be 4% lower uniformly while labor will be 6% higher uniformly. Calculate the variance of total repair costs in 2012.
