Hi @Anonymous 

You might have to use calculation groups for this:

Hi @Anonymous ,

Please have a try.

Create a measure.

Measure = var price_each=DIVIDE(SELECTEDVALUE('Table'[spend]),SELECTEDVALUE('Table'[quantity]))
var result= IF(SELECTEDVALUE('Table'[category])in {"food","drink"},FORMAT(price_each,"0.0000"),FORMAT(price_each,"0.00"))
return result

@Anonymous , Actually Might have to use format, but that might make it text

 

if(max(table[Category] in {"food","beverages"}, Format([Measure], #,###.0000) , Format([Measure], #,###.00)  )
