Aggregating stratified data

Hi,

 

I'm trying to aggregate some survey results in Power BI. The survey respondents were all split into 4 categories/strata and then a weight applied to the separate stratum before calculating weighted results, as in table below (Weighted Result = Result * Weight)

CouncilResultStratumWeightWeighted Result
110110.5105
140212480
160315.2912
12049.5190
21518120
220210.8216
250311550
260413.5810
330113390
330210.5315
350312600
360415.2912

 

I don't want to display the results at strata level in Power BI report though so I would like to be able to calculate the weighted results by strata and then display council level aggregated results only like this:

CouncilWeighted Result
11687
21696
32217

 

In this table above all the 4 separate strata results have been aggregated together for each council. When I try this in a Power BI 'Table' visualisation though it just sums everything (including adding all the weight column together) which is not what i want - the 4 separate weighted results must be calculated individually first in order to produce correct results. Is it possible to produce this simple 2-column table above in a Power BI report?
