26.       A random variable X is normally distributed with mean of 50 and variance of 50, and a random variable Y is normally distributed with mean of 100 and variance of 200. Given the random variables X and Y have a correlation coefficient equal to 0.50, find the mean and variance of the random variable W = 4X+3Y.
