Sum of Measure on a hierarchy

Hello, I hope you can help me with this problem.

I have a table with a hierarchy of three levels (item, description and unit of measure), I need to create a measure that adds only the last hierarchy, the result I need is 7.12% and when I make my DAX formula:

Weighted Variation Sum = sumx(values('PURCHASE ANALYSIS'[unit of measure]),[Weighted Variation])

The result that comes out is 7.18%. 😞

but if I do it the sum comes out 7.12%

I do not know what I'm doing wrong. Thank you so much 🙂

If you need more info i I'll be on the lookout. Thanks!
