Can someone please show me a measure of how to calculate the ratio of two numbers. The screenshot below shows how I completed the ratio in excel but how do I achieve this through power bi dax measure?  Thanks!

Hi, @noble10

According to your description, I can clearly understand your requirement, you can try to create a calculated column like this:

``````Ratio =

var _GCD=GCD([item],[product])

return

DIVIDE([product],_GCD)&":"&DIVIDE([item],_GCD)``````

And you can get what you want, like this:

You can download my test pbix file below

Thank you very much!

Hi @noble10

Try this:

Measure =
VAR _A =
MAX ( [Production] ) // X in the excel formula
VAR _B =
MAX ( [Item] ) // Y in the excel formula
VAR _GCD =
GCD ( _A_B )
RETURN
_A / _GCD & ":" & _B / _GCD

If this post helps, please consider accepting it as the solution to help the other members find it more quickly.

Appreciate your Kudos!!

Thank you for your help. Unfortunately that formula above did not work. Production and Items are measures that I have created. I got the error message below.
