Sum duplicate data only once per date measure

I have a dataset that is curretnly structured like this with some values repeating for the same date:

 

Employee nameDateHours
Hank8/26/20207
Hank8/26/20207
Hank8/25/20205.5
Sarah8/26/20209
Sarah8/26/20209
Sarah8/25/20208

 

I am trying to create a measure that sums the hours based on Unique Name and Date values.  For instance, the total for Hank here would be 12.5 (7+5.5) and 17 for Sarah (9+8).  I need the rows with duplicate dates to only be counted once towards the sum.  I cannot go in and delete that duplicate row either, it is needed for other purposes.  What is the best way to go about doing this?

Here's probably the most simple way to calculate it. Maybe even easy to understand and most likely the fastest...

 

[Total] =
SUMX(
    SUMMARIZE(
        T,
        T[Employee Name],
        T[Date],
        T[Hours]
    ),
    T[Hours]
)

@daxer @amitchandak @Greg_Deckler I have the same question but I am looking to do a distinct count of employee names.  So instead of sum up the hours I need to count names.  My results from the orginal question would be 2 for Hank and 2 for Sarah.

@Blake753 , Try a measure like

sumx(summarize(Table, table[Employee],Table[Date], "_1", Average(Table[Hours])),[_1])

@Blake753 - Maybe:

Measure =
  VAR __Table = SUMMARIZE('Table',[Employee],[Date],"Hours",AVERAGE([Hours]))
RETURN
  SUMX(__Table,[Hours])

Seems to have worked, can you do a quick run through on how and why this worked?
