Individuals who have a certain gene have a 0.50 probability of contracting a certain disease. Suppose that 1,940 individuals with the gene participate in a lifetime study. What is the standard deviation of the number of people who eventually contract the disease? Round your answer to 2 decimal places.

standard deviation = √npq
n = sample size = 1940
p = 0.50
q = 1  p = 0.50
I'll let you take it from here.
