1  Combination of the original statistically independent measurements of AAIJ 2014BE and AAIJ 2017BJ taking into account correlation between systematic uncertainties.
2  Reconstructed in ${{\mathit \Xi}_{{b}}^{-}}$ $\rightarrow$ ${{\mathit J / \psi}}{{\mathit \Xi}^{-}}$ decays.
3  Reconstructed in ${{\mathit \Xi}_{{b}}^{-}}$ $\rightarrow$ ${{\mathit J / \psi}}{{\mathit \Lambda}}{{\mathit K}^{-}}$ decays. Reference decays ${{\mathit \Lambda}_{{b}}^{0}}$ $\rightarrow$ ${{\mathit J / \psi}}{{\mathit \Lambda}}$ were used.
4  Reconstructed in ${{\mathit \Xi}_{{b}}^{-}}$ $\rightarrow$ ${{\mathit \Xi}_{{c}}^{0}}{{\mathit \pi}^{-}}$ , ${{\mathit \Xi}_{{c}}^{0}}$ $\rightarrow$ ${{\mathit p}}{{\mathit K}^{-}}{{\mathit K}^{-}}{{\mathit \pi}^{+}}$ decays. Reference ${{\mathit \Lambda}_{{b}}^{0}}$ $\rightarrow$ ${{\mathit \Lambda}_{{c}}^{+}}{{\mathit \pi}^{-}}$ .
5  Combined with AAIJ 2017BE.
