Calculate Total across columns to create percentage

I am trying to create a measure that will sum all activities in a table(AL, AM, CA etc) and display in the table the percent of the total activites for the row.  As an example, I would like to have the value for the "AL cell" in the picture below be equal to 39/272.  I have three slicers involved in this situation: one for the county the activity is in, one for the date range for the  activities and one for the company the activity is for.  The values shown in the table below currently respects all slicers involved.   I have not been able to come up with a measure to calculate the total of activites  that will respect the slicers(i.e. come up with the  total 272) so I can use it as a denomintor for each cell.  Any thoughts would be much appreciated.

Turns out the easiest solution is the best!  In the values portion of the control, i selected show the value of the variable as a percentage of the row total.  THis shows the correct percentage  and I didnt have to calculate anything.

Hi @Anonymous

 

You can either create a hardcoded calculation that does lots of summing, OR I'd suggest unpivoting the data so instead of having 1 entity having many columns, convert using the Unpivot other columns feature in Power Query, so that your one entity has fewer columns but many rows,.  You can then make quite dynamic measures to create your calculations.
