# Combination of random variables - S3 watch

1. I'm so confused..
Why do you square the constant before the Var in the first case and you just times by the constant in the second case?

I know I'm missing a key thing.. Help :3

I've done this chapter back in October and it was perfectly fine, now that I'm tryna revise I think I'm missing a key thing.. Help :3
It's something you should have learnt in S1!
