Comparing 2 Nested Slicers in a Table

Is there an easy way to compare the 2 nested slicers?
Example1:
Select: Slicer1 - Parent2, Group1, Type3 and Type4
Select: Slicer2 – Parent1, Group2 (Selecting all types in Group2)
Slicer1 = 5
Slicer2 = 10
Measures:
DivideSlicers = Divide(Slicer2,Slicer1) this would equal 2

Example2:
Select: Slicer1 – Type3
Select: Slicer2 – Type7
Slicer1 = 3
Slicer2 = 4
Measure:
DivideSlicers = Divide(Slicer2,Slicer1) this would equal 1.33

Slicer1

  • Parent1
    • Group1
      • type1
      • type2
    • Group2
      • Type5
      • Type6
      • Type7
    • Parent2
      • Group1
        • Type1 - Value 6
        • Type3 – Value 3
        • Type4 – Value 2

 

Slicer2

  • Parent1
    • Group1
      • type1
      • type2
    • Group2
      • Type5 – Value 2
      • Type6 – Value 4
      • Type7 – Value 4
    • Parent2…

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you,

I can currently get single data types from each slicer, however i cant get multiple types from a single slicer. 

Hi, @Walt 

Are you currently using a hierarchy slicer? What do 'single data type' refer to?

Please share a sample .pbix for further research.

Yes, they are Hierarchy Slicers.
Single Data types like in the examples, 1Type 2Type and so on.
Here is another Example:
Slicer 1 I select..
From in Parent 1
in Group 2
1Type it has a value of 10

Then Slicer 2 Select 2 Types
From Parent 2
in Group 2
3Type with a value of 20
and
4Type with a value of 30

I would like to be able to compare the 1 selected type in Slicer 1 to the 2 selected types in Slicer 2.
So I could say... AVG the Slicer 2 Values to 25 or I could Sum them to 50 then compare them to the Slicer 1 Value of 10. 
SUM(Slicer2) / SUM (Slicer1) or Average(Slicer2)/Average(Slicer1) or Average(Slicer2)/SUM(Slicer1)

Hi, @Walt 

Still just confused by part of your explanation, whether your slicer is multi-select or not, the final result should be aggregated.

Do aggregation operations like sum and average of fields in the table work in your case?

Measure2 = Average(Slicer2[Value])/SUM(Slicer1[Value])

Looking at your Example.  I am trying to accomplish something different.  I have a it setup as 3 seperate Tables.  The Parent, Type, and Group are identical.  Should I be doing something else?

Slicer1(Created with Dax):
- Parent
- Type
- Group
Slicer2(Created with Dax):
- Parent
- Type
- Group

DataValues (Data Source):
- Parent
- Type
- Group
- Values

Hi, @Walt 

You need to copy a new table and filter the data separately by these two slicers to compare the results.

Result =
SUM ( 'Table1'[value] ) / SUM ( 'Table2'[value] )
