How to calculate percentage of item by category

 Hi,

I am trying to get percentage of a single item by category. The simplest way would be to calculate a measure for that specific item and overwrite the filter using ALL function. However, this doesnt work strangely. below is the screenshot of what i tried.

Measure : 

Hrs = SUM('Table 1'[Hrs])

SAH = CALCULATE(SUM('Table 1'[Hrs]), ('Table 1'[Category] = "SAH", All('Table 1'[Category])

% from SAH = Divide(Total,SAH)

Below is the screenshot of the result:

Any suggestions would be helpful. Thanks!
