Create a measure that adds up the results of another measure

I have a measure called [Weighted Score] which calculates a percentage - multiplying Result by Weight. There are three weights, depending on the Category:

 

Category     Weight     Result      Weighted Score

A                  .4             64.3          25.7%

C                  .25           66.7          16.7%

E                  .35           100.0         35.0%

 

I need an 'Overall Weighted Score' measure which adds the three weighted scores up. So in my example, the total would be 77.4%.
I cannot for the life of me get DAX to do this. 

HELP!

Figured it out.

Created three Variances - using Calculate, to manually create the three separate Weighted Scores

Returned var 1 + var 2 + var 3

 

I'm sure there is a more efficient way to do this, but I got the result I wanted.
