## Dividing columns from two calculated tables

I have a Dates table, a bookings table, and a sales table.

I created two tables which summarize total bookings and total sales by EOM (End of Month from the Dates table):

EOM = EOMONTH(Dates[Date],0)

I am now trying to divide the Monthly Bookings and the sales Monthly Shipments so that I can show book-to-bill by month.

Monthly Bookings =
SUMMARIZE (
AMCBookings,
Dates[EOM],
"Total", SUM (AMCBookings[Total])
)

Monthly Sales =
SUMMARIZE (
AMCSalesLog,
Dates[EOM],
"Total", SUM (AMCSalesLog[Sales])
)

I cannot seem to figure it out.  Can anyone help?

I would like the data to look like below and then be able to divide Total Bookings by Total Sales for each EOM.

 EOM Total Bookings Total Sales 10/31/2020 100,000,000.00 120,000,000.00 9/30/2020 90,000,000.00 110,000,000.00

@dgelfuso , You can join then with date table and then analyze together with dates table

And try a measure like

divide(sum('Monthly Bookings'[Total]), sum('Monthly Sales'[Total]))

Or you can combone these two table and analyze

new Table

union (
SUMMARIZE (
AMCBookings,
Dates[EOM],
"Total Bookings", SUM (AMCBookings[Total]),
"Total Sales", 0
)
,
SUMMARIZE (
AMCSalesLog,
Dates[EOM],
"Total Bookings", 0,
"Total Sales", SUM (AMCSalesLog[Sales])
)
)

This is the result.  I think I need one row per EOM date so that I can perform math on the two columns.

 EOM Total Bookings Total Sales 10/31/2020 0 120,000,000.00 10/31/2020 90,000,000.00 0

I had to create another table that resulted in one row per EOM date (see below).  I would think it would be possible to do it in one step instead of two.

Monthly Table Final =
SUMMARIZE (
FILTER('Monthly Table','Monthly Table'[EOM]<>blank()),
'Monthly Table'[EOM],
"Total Bookings", SUM ('Monthly Table'[Total Bookings]),
"Total Sales", SUM ('Monthly Table'[Total Sales])
)
