how to calculate expected number of hands a player can split to in blackjack?

Hey math experts!
here is 10 million iterations, counting the frequency of 1,2,3 splits occuring in a single deck bj game:
splits : 587517 0.0587517
nonsplits: 9412483 0.9412483
splits : 47262 0.0402387317588162
nonsplits: 1127278 0.959761268241184
splits : 969 0.0205027294655326
nonsplits: 46293 0.979497270534467
1112236146 is the stop time
now, what would the "expected number of hands the player could split to" be? How do I calculate the EV given the frequency/histogram results?
