(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); [SOLVED] Properties of variance

Would the Var(aX + bY + c) just be the Var(aX+bY) since adding a single number to the function doesn't change the variance. I would then be able to use the property:

Var(aX+bY)= a^2Var(X)+b^2Var(Y)+2abCov(X,Y)

Just wondering if anyone can confirm my reasoning here. Thanks.
