Is it possible to change or display the correct data type in a measure

I have a great formula that change of the measure based on the user selection

The problem is that on this formula we calculate some values as Decimal Number and 2 others as Percentage but when selecting the values that should appear in % they appears as decimal
is there anyway to solve this? that when user select X Measure the values shown as % if they are % or decimal if not 


this values should be %
