## How to measure the sum of X table (of this semester) / the sum of X table (of the last semester)

Hello and happy thanksgiving for you all,

I am having this issue with this tables and the formula should be:

But I was not able to had a proper calculation, since I am here:

Now, I have the semester as the column name "Año" where it shows as an integer the year and "Semester" that shows 1 and 2. Also, the "Matriculados" column is an integer.

I would be glad to know that there is a way to calculate the required formula.

Hi @parisaranda ,

I build a sample to have a test. Firstly add a calculated column : Rank by Year and Semester.

``Rank by Year and Semester = RANKX('Table','Table'[Año]*10+'Table'[Semester],,ASC,Dense)``

Measure:

``````Sum of X table (of this semester) / Sum of X table (of the last semester) =
VAR _THIS_Semester =
CALCULATE ( SUM ( 'Table'[Matriculados] ) )
VAR _LAST_Semester =
CALCULATE (
FILTER (
ALL ( 'Table' ),
'Table'[Rank by Year and Semester]
= MAX ( 'Table'[Rank by Year and Semester] ) - 1
)
)
RETURN
DIVIDE ( _THIS_Semester, _LAST_Semester )``````

Result is as below.
