Average vs. sum in a measure for a matrix roll up/roll down



   I am trying to figure out how to best display the order rates  (number of orders divided by the number of clicks) per customer per product.  To illustrate the problem, consider just one customer and 3 products, and let's suppose their order rates for those products in a given time period are 50%, 20%, and 10% because they ordered 2 products out of 4 clicks, 1 out of 5, and 1 out of 10, respectively.  


    I calculate this measure:


   ClickRate = 100*CALCULATE(SUM(Query['Purchases']))/CALCULATE(SUM(Query['Clicks']))


and it shows this:


                            Time Period 


   product1             50

   product2             20 

   product3             10 


  which is fine.


 But then when I roll it up to CustomerA as a whole, the measure calculates 21%, which is 100*(2+1+1)/(4+5+10).  What I want instead is the average of those per-product purchase rates, so (50+20+10)/3 = 27%.   But I don't know if it's possible to do different measures depending on roll up/roll down levels in a matrix?  Or is there another solution?


   Thank you!
