Divide by Zero error

Hi,

 

Here is my dax measure: AVG = CALCULATE(IF(
OR(ABS([Sales]) = 0, ABS([Pounds]) = 0),0,DIVIDE([Sales],[Pounds)))
I got correct answer for all columns but except one, it shows very small number(-6,219,471,085,398,656) after I using this measure, it should be showed as zero.
What is the issue with it?

for except this error you should use ROUND

 

AVG = 
var _sales=Round([Sales],2)
var _pounds = Round([Pounds],2)

var _result = CALCULATE(IF(
OR(_sales = 0, _pounds  = 0),0,DIVIDE(_sales,_pounds ))

return _result

Why the ABS?

if you want to check if the measure is 0 (not blank), use [Sales] == 0
