Matrix problem : Percentage ADDING instead of Percentage%

Good Morning,

Can someone tell me why my matrix is adding the Division totals instead of giving the % ?  Or if there is a workaround .....I have over 4 hours in this.  Thank you for any help

 

  • Vendor%  is calculated by :  Vendors / Total Workers
  • All the divisions below are correct for the Vendor %
  • However, all the Names (E. Willie, D.Dave, C.Drew) are incorrect for the %.  Power BI is ADDING values instead of dividing (Example for E.Willie below, it says 2.82 instead of .663      It is adding  .60 +.69 +.64 + .89 = 2.82 instead of 324/488 = .663

@Anonymous , Have created a measure like

 

Divide(Sum(Table[A]), Sum(Table[B]) )

 

or

 

Divide(Sum(Table[A]), count(Table[A]) )

 

or are you summing up % column
