$$SD(aX+b)$$

$$=\sqrt{Var(aX+b)}$$

$$=\sqrt{Var(aX)}$$

$$=\sqrt{a^2Var(X)}$$

$$=\sqrt{a^2\sigma^2}$$

$$=a\sigma$$

Your Answer

Surround your text in *italics* or **bold**, to write a math equation use, for example, $x^2+2x+1=0$ or $$\beta^2-1=0$$

Use LaTeX to type formulas and markdown to format text. See example.
