Too few arguments were passed to the FILTER function.The minimum argument count for function is 2

Hi, I am new to Power Bi and I am struggling with DAX. I have this function in the filter, it is giving me an error. How can I fix this?

Expenses = CALCULATE([Transcation Amount], FILTER (transactions[Transaction Type] = "debit"), transactions[Category] <> "transfer", transactions[Category] <> "Credit Card Payment")
Income = CALCULATE([Transcation Amount], FILTER(transactions[Category] = "credit"), transactions[Category]<> "transfer", transactions[Category] <> "Credit Card Payment")

FILTER function requires a table expression as the first argument. so in your case, the measure might be:

Expenses =
    [Transcation Amount],
    FILTER (
        transactions[Transaction Type] = "debit"
            && transactions[Category] <> "transfer"
            && transactions[Category] <> "Credit Card Payment"
