Calculate value as percentage of column average

I'm attempting to represent some table values as a percentage of the column average as follows:

 

BranchQuantityQuantity as % of Ave. Quantity
1205,985.02359.23%
2271,534.92578.08%
3336,876.44396.87%
4525,621.254151.15%
5367,018.183105.54%
6649,992.331186.92%
7101,413.51829.16%
8323,528.03493.04%
Total2,781,969.711 

 

The quantity value for each branch is correctly calculated using a measure but I cannot get the correct DAX calculation to determine the values shown in the Quantity as % of Ave. Quantity column.  I can correctly calculate the average (347,746.21) as a separate measure but when I drop a new measure of Quantity / Average the row result is not correct.

 

I have the individual branch value as a % of column total correctly calculated but feel I am now over-thinking what I need to do to achieve the solution I'm after.

@essjayemm you avg qty measure should be this:

 

Avg Qty = CALCULATE ( AVERAGE ( 'Table'[Quantity] ), ALLSELECTED() )

 

change ALLSELECTED to ALL if you don't want any slicer/filter rows to be removed from the average and from here rest of the calculation should be easy.
