Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

ki = return on asset i

kRF = risk-free rate

kM = market return

bi = beta for asset i

kM - kRF = market risk premium

ki = kRF +(kM - kRF)bi 

0.124 = 0.042 + (km-0.042)*1.17

0.124- 0.042 = (km-0.042)*1.17

(km-0.042)*1.17 = 0.082

(km-0.042) = 0.0701

km = 0.1121
