    Finance...portfolio std dev

    How would this be calculated?

    You have two stocks in your portfolio. You have $150,000 invested in "A" and $250,000 invested in "B". The standard deviation of "A" is 25% and "B" is 20%. The correlation between them is .75. What is the portfolio standard deviation?
