John's income levels from these two sources are independent of each other.

Referring to Table 6-4, for a given month, what is the probability that John's total income from these two jobs is less than $825?

The answer is .0668

The toal mean is 900 and total Std is 50

My question is how did they come up with the total mean and std?
