Jen’s commute to work requires that she take the Blue subway line, then transfer to the Red line. The length of the trip on the Blue line has a mean of 18 minutes with a standard deviation of 2 minutes. The Red line trip takes 12 minutes with a standard deviation of 1 minute. The waiting time between when she gets off the Blue line and her Red line train arrives has mean of 10 minutes and a standard deviation of 5 minutes. Assume (perhaps unrealistically) that these times are independent random variables. What are the mean and standard deviation of her entire commute?
