EDX Lab 2 Exercise 3: Year to Date

EDX Lab 2 Exercise 3: Year to Date

 

Hello Everyone,

Trying to learn Power BI but I find it more difficult then I thought or maybe the course itself is not clear enough…

 

I’m now at Lab 2 Exercise 3: Year to Date

 

I cannot validate any of my answers and I know that if, I get one of these wrong it will effect the other values.

 

PLEASE HELP, thanks in advance.

 

 

Here is what I got (and what the answer should be I think …)

 

YTD Sales
YTD Sales = TOTALYTD([Total Sales], 'Date'[Date])
My answer: 136,956,026.68
Correct answer: ?

 

LY YTD Sales
LY YTD Sale = CALCULATE([Total Sales], SAMEPERIODLASTYEAR(, 'Date'[Date]))
My answer: 4,990,799,422.97
Correct answer: 272,629,284.10

 

YTD Sales Var 
YTD Sales Var = ([YTD Sales] - [LY YTD Sales])
My answer: -4,853,843,396.29
Correct answer: ?

 

YTD Sales Var %
YTD Sales Var % = DIVIDE([YTD Sales Var],[LY YTD Sales])
Correct answer: 49.76
My answer: -97.26%

Good news, I started again from the beginning (after a good nights sleep) and I was

able to do it again without any problems !
