    You should know the distribution of the sum of two normal variates, or at least be able to look it up in your book.

    Find that distribution and apply it.

    hint

    $X \sim N\left(\mu_x, \sigma_x\right)$

    $Y \sim N\left(\mu_y,\sigma_y\right)$

    $X+Y \sim N\left(\mu_x + \mu_y,~\sqrt{\sigma_x^2+\sigma_y^2}\right)$
