## DAX SUM with or conditions on the same column

I need to sum values on a column based on multiple conditions on another column in the same table using DAX. For example, here is the table Bicycles:

ID   Price   Colour

1    10       Green

2    15       Red

3    12       Blue

4    10       Purple

5    12       Yellow

6    15       Magenta

7    12       Red

8    10       Blue

9    12       Teal

I want to summarize the price for all bicycles that are Red, Blue and Green. From the table above it would be  10+15+12+12+10 = 59.

If I want to summarize based on blue this formula works:

Sum of prices for popular colours = CALCULATE(SUM(Bicycles[Price]), FILTER('Bicycles', Bicycles[Colour] = "Blue"))

This also works:

Sum of prices for popular colours = CALCULATE(SUM(Bicycles[Price]), Bicycles[Colour] = "Blue")

However, I need need to add multiple or condions on the colour column to include the colours green and red. I have not been successful. I have tried the following but it does not return anything:

Sum of prices for popular colours = CALCULATE(SUM(Bicycles[Price]), FILTER('Bicycles', Bicycles[Colour] = "Blue"), FILTER('Bicycles', Bicycles[Colour] = "Red"), FILTER('Bicycles', Bicycles[Colour] = "Green"))

Is it possible to put the equivalent of an or condtion to filter on specific values of the same column? How can this be done?

I tried this solution for my own dataset but it didn't work.  Would that be because my "red/green/blue" field comes from a drop-down list instead of direct entry?

That worked. Thanks.
