datesytd not working?

I have the next DAX code:

 

VAR CALC1 = CALCULATE( [Headcount R12Avg], 'Date'[IsPastDays] = 1)
VAR CALC2 = CALCULATE( [Resignations R12], 'Date'[IsPastDays] = 1)
RETURN

CALCULATE( DIVIDE( CALC2, CALC1), DATESYTD( 'Date'[Date], "31/05") ) 



But whenever I remove the 'datesytd.... ' I get the same value?

 

How is it possible that both CALCULATE( DIVIDE( CALC2, CALC1), DATESYTD( 'Date'[Date], "31/05") ) 

 

and  DIVIDE( CALC2, CALC1)

 

Return the same value??

@ovonel , Try like

 

VAR CALC1 = CALCULATE( [Headcount R12Avg], filter('Date', 'Date'[IsPastDays] = 1))
VAR CALC2 = CALCULATE( [Resignations R12], filter('Date', 'Date'[IsPastDays] = 1))
RETURN

CALCULATE( DIVIDE( CALC2, CALC1), DATESYTD( 'Date'[Date], "31/05") )

 

 

Also make sure, date table is marked as the date table

 

Filter/slicer/ visual use period from date table only
