## Cohort - Calculation Troubles - Calculate / Divide and MIN ?

Hello All,

I'm using the Matrix visual in Power BI to create a "Cohort" analysis.

As you can see below, we have the date month of the first order (first column) and then by month how many customers stayed.

The table is build in a was that we have no date intelligence. Thus I'm solely relying on min/max (but it doesn't work).

In the expected result table, you can see that I want to :
Divide(
Calculate(sum(value)),
Calculate(sum(value)),
Filtered by ? To obtain the minimum of the row.

Exemple: 80/150=53% for 201704 on the row 201701

the "201701" are number and represent the year & month.

Thank you in advance for your insights!

Best,

BT
