## Creating a weight/cost ratio measure

Hi

I'm pretty awful with measures, so while I don't think this is particularly difficult I'm struggling to write it out. I have data across two tables, Orders and Shipments. A shipment is made up of one or more orders, so in this example Orders A and B make up Shipment 0001.

 Orders Weight Order A 25 Order B 30

 Shipments Total Weight Total Cost (USD) Shipment 0001 55 200

From this I need to find the cost per order:

Shipments[Total Cost] / Shipments[Total Weight] * Orders[Weight]

Order A Cost = 200 / 55 * 25 = \$90.91

Many thanks!

Hello @Welsh_Will ,

I created two test tables with one or many relationships based on shipment fields.

Next, create a measure like this:

``````Measure = var per_weight=
CALCULATE(DIVIDE(MAX('Table (2)'[Cost]),MAX('Table (2)'[weight])))
return CALCULATE(per_weight*MAX('Table'[Weight]))``````

Thank you!

How are orders and shipments associated in the data model? Does the Orders table have a column for shipment number?
