What is the beta of the portfolio, Corporate Finance

Question:

There are two stocks, stock A and stock B. The price of stock A today is $70. The price of stock A next year will be $50 if the economy is in recession, $80 if the economy is normal and $95 if the economy is expanding. The attendant probabilities of recession, normal times, and expansion are 0.2, 0.6, 0.2, respectively. Stock A pays no dividend. Assume the CAPM is true. Other information about the market includes:

SD(Rm)            = Standard deviation of the market portfolio = 0.10

SD(Rb)            = Standard deviation of stock B's return = 0.12

Rb                    = Expected return on stock B = 0.10

Corr(Ra,Rm)     = The correlation of stock A and the market = 0.7

Corr(Rb,Rm)     = The correlation of stock B and the market = 0.34

Corr(Ra,Rb)      = The correlation of stock A and stock B = 0.6

What is the beta of the portfolio consisting of 30% of stock A and 70% of stock B?
