Hi @operez901028 

its better to create topics like this in another part of community: https://community.powerbi.com/t5/Desktop/bd-p/power-bi-designer

So, anyway. everything is saying that you have a round-problem

13056.83/360 = 36.269

 

so, try to click left mouse on your field Cost then go to Modelling pane or Column tools pane (in the new version of pbi desktop) and set number of decimal as 3

Hi,

The "error" seems a rounding problem.

I suggest you use the same precision in your all numbers to see the exact value.
