## How to custom average a measure

Good afternoon,

I am working with the following model:

Values

 REGION VALUE EUROPE 8 EUROPE 3 EUROPE 4 ASIA 1 ASIA 2 ASIA 6 AMERICA 5 AMERICA 7

Weights

 REGION WEIGHT AMERICA 7 ASIA 2 EUROPE 14

I need to subtotalize the values by region as a measure. Thus, after having inquired in the forum I got the following DAX expression:

AVRG = CALCULATE(
AVERAGE( 'VALUES'[VALUE] ),
VALUES( 'VALUES'[REGION] ),
ALLSELECTED( 'VALUES' )
)

Resulting on the following table:
 REGION VALUE WEIGHT AVRG AMERICA 12 7 6 ASIA 9 2 3 EUROPE 15 14 5

If I delete the Region column everything sums up in a line with a 4,50 average value. What I need is to customize that average calculation by using the Weights table values and the filtered data in the report.

If I select AMERICA and ASIA, the result should be:

 REGION VALUE WEIGHT AVRG C_WEIGHT TOTAL AMERICA 12 7 6 78% 4,67 ASIA 9 2 3 22% 0,67 sum 9 result 5,33

If I select AMERICA, ASIA and EUROPE, the result should be:

 REGION VALUE WEIGHT AVRG C_WEIGHT TOTAL AMERICA 12 7 6 30% 1,83 ASIA 9 2 3 9% 0,26 EUROPE 15 14 5 61% 3,04 sum 23 result 5,13

This result should remain even if I delete columns from the table. If I just want to show the TOTAL column, the result value should be the same (5,33 and 5,13 depending on the report filters).

How could I achieve this?

Thank you so much in advance,
