#### Last steps

##### Compute the average

2015 | 2016 | 2017 | 2018 | 2019 | Sum | Average |
---|---|---|---|---|---|---|

-91 | -87 | -76 | -66 | -57 | -377.0 | -75.4 |

##### Compute the Upper Control Limit

Simply compute the standard deviation and multiply by 3 and add to the average: **-33.4**

##### Compute the Lower Control Limit

Simply compute the standard deviation and multiply by 3 and subtract from the average: **-117.4**

##### For the lines, you have the data necessary to plot the chart.
