Help with calculated column or measure

I  have a dataset...... simplified here:

Case Number Assistance  
11/1/2023Rent  
11/1/2023Util  
21/1/2023Rent  
21/1/2023Rent  
31/1/2023Util  
31/1/2023Util  

 

What I am trying to do is to calculate the number of labor hours per case in a report.

If same case number has Rent and Util assistance, the hours for the case would be 6

if same case number has Rent and Rent, the hours for the case would be 7

if same case number has Util and Util, the hours for the case would be 5

 

I'm having difficulty determining how to do the calculation here and whether or not this should be in a measure, a calculated table, or in a calculated column.  Any assistance is greatly appreciated.  My report desire is to sum the hours spent on a case for each assistance type.

@jwessel Maybe:

Measure =
  VAR __Case = MAX('Table'[Case Number])
  VAR __Table = SUMMARIZE('Table',[Assistance])
  VAR __Count = COUNTROWS(__Table)
  VAR __Result = 
    SWITCH(TRUE(),
      __Count = 2, 6,
      MAXX(__Table, [Assistance]) = "Rent", 7,
      5
    )
RETURN
  __Result

Hi Greg.  thanks again for that information.  While I didn't use it specifically due to some other factors, it definitely set me on the right path for a solution !!

thanks Greg, I will give that a try.
