## DAX Formula returning Medium of two Sums

Greetings!

I have this issue on my report that my DAX Formula isn't working the way I want. I got numeric field "Total Value" (A) that represent the total amount of a sale and also the numeric field "Quantity" (B) which represent the quantity of certain product. In this case, my calculated field "Unitary Value" (C) needs to be calculated following this formula: (Total Value/Quantity). Once the Total Value and Quantity fields are shown as a SUM in my Tooltip, I have created my calculated column this way:

`Valor Unitário = (SUM('Movimentos de Compras/Despesas'[Valor Total])/SUM('Movimentos de Compras/Despesas'[Quantidade])`

Having this result:

I can't understand why the result is 156,26 once it should be (514.861,36 / 33) = 15.601,85. Can you guys help me?

Grateful for your attention.

Hi @Anonymous.

You need to create  a calculated measure and not a calculated column, when you create a calculated column of the unit values the sum of those values are not the unit values of all the quantities.

Create a measure and use the exact same formula, and check if it gets the correct result.
