Multiplication error

Hi guys!

 

I have two columns that I want to multiply.

One is average of Impact score and the other one is count of responses.

 

I want to multiply those two columns and I did Column one* column two

 

But the product is not equal to what it should be. For e.g 0.10*308 is giving me 32.18 as output.

You can see that in the picture below.

Is it because I'm directly counting dates? Is there any other way of counting dates?

I'm counting responses in the following manner- count of surveys received for a particular date/month/year

And that is stored in the response count column and multiplying that with avg.impact score

Hi @Anonymous 

Use the below instead 

Measure = [Response_Count] * ROUND(AVERAGE('Score Query'[Impact]), 2)

Re: Multiplication error

Sure.

Measure = [Response_Count]*AVERAGE('Score Query'[Impact])
 
Response count = count(surveyreceived)

Re: Multiplication error

Average means it's rounding, showing you just 2 decimals but using the full figure later on.

Refer to this thread: https://community.powerbi.com/t5/Desktop/Number-values-are-getting-round-off-automatically/m-p/46850... to get a full overview.
