Divide one column by another in a matrix

Hey everyone, I am pretty new to Power BI and could use some help here. I will have screenshots included to explain. I have a matrix with 2 columns titled "0" and "1". Together they are the sum of all payments made but the "0" is payments coming in and the "1" is payments coming out. I am trying to add a third column that tells me the ROI by having the "1" column divided by the "0" column. This data is coming from the "EAGLEADV_Payment" data report. Just disregard everything else on the dashboard except the matrix. Thanks! Screenshot 2024-04-22 212958.png

Hi @alexstock01 
You can create 3 needed measures.
For example, my table looks like :

Ritaf1983_0-1713847887867.png

So the measures will be:
1.Credit = CALCULATE(sum('Table'[Value]),'Table'[type]="credit")

Ritaf1983_1-1713847988063.png

2. 

Debit = CALCULATE(sum('Table'[Value]),'Table'[type]="debit")
3. 
ROI = DIVIDE([Debit],[Credit])
