## Calculating the weighted value

Hi, i'm a novice of power bi.

I need to make a report where after i have grouped a lot of employees by category, i have to calculate the weighted value of "Conteggio di MATRICOLA" (es. 582*0,30) in a new column. All this dynamically.

"QUALIFICA" and "PESO" are in a table.

Thanks a lot 🙂

## Re: Calculating the weighted value

from your question, I am not sure whether 'Peso' and 'Conteggio di Matricola' are measures or columns.

If they are both measures, you can simply create a new measure with formula:

`Conteggio weighted = [CONTEGGIO DI MATRICOLA] * [PESO]`

If one or both them is a column, you'll need to decide how to 'aggregate' the column (which has multiple values) to one single value to include in your multiplication.

Below is a second example, if Conteggio di Matricola and Peso are both columns:

`Weighted of Conteggio = SUM('Table'[CONTEGGIO DI MATRICOLA])*AVERAGE('Table'[PESO])`

In this second example, the column Peso is aggregated by adding all of its values and the column Conteggio is aggregated by making an average of its values.

## Re: Calculating the weighted value

Have you looked at the SUMX-function?

Spoiler
```weighted value =
SUMX ( Table; table[Peso] * [Conteggio di MATRICOLA] )```
