The inclusive cross section for production of a single top quark production in association with a W boson is measured in both the dilepton and in the lepton+jets final state. Events are are selected requiring two (one) charged leptons and one or two (at least three) jets with at most two (one) jets (jet) identified as containing b hadrons. Multivariate discriminants are constructed to separate the tW signal from the dominant top-quark pair̄ background. Measurements use data from LHC proton-proton collisions recorded during Run2 at both 13 and 8 TeV center-of-mass energy
