1) If I were plotting the saleamount, what are the considerations for choosing a subgroup size for plotting a "X Bar - Range" chart for the ABOVE sample data?

2) If I were to select a subgroup size = 3, (and therefore consider the first 3 items as one subgroup) would this be a correct method of selecting the subgroup size, since the variation within the subgroup ie. between item 3 (Saleamount = 3868) and items 1 and 2 (Saleamount approx. 2500) is large?

Appreciate your ideas!
