A portfolio beta is the weighted sum of the individual betas.

For a given portfolio beta of 1.12, and since the 20 constituent stocks are worth $5000 each, they have equal weights.

By exchanging one stock with beta of 0.9 for one with beta=1.75 the new portfolio beta is

(20*1.12-0.9+1.75)/20

= 1.1625

=1.16
