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. 

 

FoodPriceComment
Pizza5instaworthy
Pasta4good
Apples3bad, ugly

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

 

FoodPriceComment
Pizza5instaworthy
Pasta4good
Apples3bad
Apples3ugly

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] ) ) )
Try my new Power BI game Cross the River

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])))
