## Power Bi time differences

Hello I have a question, I have a database with different materials that are purchased on different dates, these are in the database, and I need to calculate how often this material is being purchased, that is, for example, a material x leaves date of purchase January 1, then January 6, then January 16, So between the first 2 there are 5 days and among the others there are 10 days then the average would be 7.5 days, I need to do that for each material, the dates are all in the same column.

Suppose we have a table:

``````Avg =
VAR _hours =
SUMX (
SUMMARIZE (
'Table',
'Table'[Material],
'Table'[Date],
"HOUR",
DATEDIFF (
'Table'[Date],
CALCULATE (
MIN ( 'Table'[Date] ),
FILTER (
ALL ( 'Table' ),
'Table'[Date] > EARLIER ( 'Table'[Date] )
&& 'Table'[Material] = EARLIER ( 'Table'[Material] )
)
),
DAY
)
),
[HOUR]
)
VAR _times =
COUNTROWS ( 'Table' ) - 1
VAR _result =
DIVIDE(_hours,_times)
RETURN
_result``````
