## Calculating totals after unpivoting

Hi, new to Power Bi, so probably a noob question.

In my data table, I have unique instances (say, "Fruits" tasted) and a comma-delimeted, multiple value column ("Comment") which I needed to unpivot.

 Food Price Comment Pizza 5 instaworthy Pasta 4 good Apples 3 bad, ugly

Howerver, this messes up the visualizations displaying, say, the total price, or the average price, of foods tasted.

 Food Price Comment Pizza 5 instaworthy Pasta 4 good Apples 3 bad Apples 3 ugly

How can I have my visualizations display the correct total price (12, not 15) and average price (4, not 3,75)?

I undestand that Wrong Totals after unpivoting some columns deals with the same issue, but I am not sure how to apply that to my visuals.

Try this MEASURE

```Measure =
SUMX ( VALUES ( Table1[Food] ), CALCULATE ( AVERAGE ( Table1[Price] ) ) )
```

Hi @LauriL

You could create measures as Zubair_Muhammad suggested

```AVERAGE = AVERAGEX(VALUES(Sheet3[Food]),CALCULATE(AVERAGE(Sheet3[Price])))

SUM TOTAL = SUMX(VALUES(Sheet3[Food]),CALCULATE(AVERAGE(Sheet3[Price])))```
