You can use the Statistics gadget to add a Mean line to a curve or only part of the curve.

  1. Activate the graph window and select Gadgets: Statistics from the main menu.
  2. In the dialog that opens, click OK to add a Region of Interest (ROI) box to the graph. A Mean line is added. Click on the ROI and move or resize, as needed, so that it covers only the data points of interest.
  3. Click the triangle button at the top-right and select Tag Lines from the fly-out menu. This will add the Mean line as an object; if you close the ROI by clicking on the gadget's X button, you won't delete the Mean line.

See here for a detailed example.
