a)Expected return of the portfolio = Wb * Rb + Wj * Rj
Expected return of the portfolio = 0.45 * 22% + 0.55 * 25% = 23.65%
Where
Wb = Weights of Blue Hotel Inc.
Wj = Weights of Joys Food Inc.
Rb = Return of Blue Hotel Inc.
Rj = Return of Joys Food Inc.
b)
Variance of the portfolio = (Wb^2*SD^2 + Wj^2*SD^2 + 2*Wb*Wj*Correlation*SD*SD)
Variance of the portfolio = 0.45^2 *9^2 + 0.55^2 * 11^2 + 2*0.45*0.55*9*11*0.50
Variance of the portfolio = 16.4025 + 36.6025 + 24.5025
Variance of the portfolio = 77.51%
