My First H1B is from Oct 2011 to July 2014.
In 2013 - I worked at 2 client location (a) NY (Jan - June) & (B) IL (June - Dec) & I have two LCA .

LCA (NY) displayed $65000 ,
LCA (IL) displayed $58000.

Question :
(1) To count Total LCA Wage, below mentioned calculation is correct?

$ 65000 / 2 + $58000/2 = $61500

What should be my correct LCA amount
