Calculated Column within Matrix

I need to calculated already in a Power BI Matrix a column that is Total Value minus column a & b

 a & b columns are already defined and whatever is not a & b should go to other category 


Current Matrix:

shows a + b = total

a= 3

b=  1

total= 5


I need to generate other column so that it is li

a + b + other = total

a= 3

b=  1

other= 1

total= 5

Hi @JorgePerez91 


Can you share some sample data in table format and show how the matrix visual looks like currently? For example, what is on rows/columns and what is in values? And what is the matrix expected to be like?
