1  AAIJ 2019AG reports [${{\mathit \Lambda}_{{c}}^{+}}$ MEAN LIFE] $/$ [${{\mathit D}^{\pm}}$ MEAN LIFE] = $0.1956$ $\pm0.0010$ $\pm0.0013$ which we multiply by our best value ${{\mathit D}^{\pm}}$ MEAN LIFE = ($1.040$ $\pm0.007$) $ \times 10^{-12}$ s. Our first error is their experiment's error and our second error is the systematic error from using our best value.
