Assume that the risk free rate is 5% and the market risk premium

This answer was rated:

★★★★★

Assume that the risk free rate is 5% and the market risk premium is 6%. What is the expected return for the overall stock market? What is the required rate of return on a stock with a beta of 1.2?

Now, the correct answer should be 5.50% for the expected rate of return, and the 12% is the required rate of return with beta 1.2. This is the answer that our instructor gave us, but I am confused with the formula to get the 5.50%. Help!!
