## Customize the 'Total' Formula for a visual

Hi community!

I'm facing an issue in Power Bi and i am in desperate need of some help. I need some way to modify the formula used to find the total.

So, im having 2 tables which are shown below -

Table2 has been created using the Distinct formula.

``DISTINTCT('Table1'[House])``

Where,

``Mathematics = AVERAGEX(FILTER('Table1', ('Table1'[House] = 'Table2'[House]), 'Table1'[Mathematics])``

Now i need to display the Total in such a way that Total of Mathematics column should be = Sum of Marks / Total number of students

ex. Total for Mathematics = (20 + 10 + 30 + 20)/ 4

Is there any way to do this? Or can i use some sort of custom visual?

Thanks for any help!

It did indeed turn out that i was over complicating things.

By skipping the creation of Table 2 completely and by using the same Dataset of Table1 to make the 2nd visual, i am able to get this result.

I gave the 'House' as the Matric Row and the Subjects as the Matrix Values and selected the average value.

Thanks all for the help! Your techniques will surely be useful to me in the future.

@DevadathanK , you can try isfiltered or isinscope

if(isfiltered(Table[House]),sum('Table1'[Mathematics]),[Mathematics])

@DevadathanK seems like you are overcomplicating your calculation, anyhow, you can use HASONEFILTER function to check if you are on total line then create a different calculation

``````Measure =
IF ( HASONEFILTER( Table[Room] ), <<your average calculation>>,
DIVIDE( SUM ( Table[MathCol] ), COUNTROWS( VALUES ( Table[Room] ) ) )
)``````

tweak the above measure as per your need.
