using Switch to compare column values

Hi this is what I have so far

BalanceScore = IF(AND([Shift1]=[Shift2],[Shift3]=[Shift4]),IF(AND([Shift3]=[Shift4],[Shift4]=[Shift5]),3,1),1)
 
I would like to setup a Dax forumula.  My table name is 'Math'
 
what I want to see is when the values of all the columns are the same, values returned should be 3, otherwise 1. 
 
I think I ought to use SWITCH(TRUE(), however I can't  use it properly

Hi @salman_ali 

try

BalanceScore = IF(
'Math'[Shift1]='Math'[Shift2] && 'Math'[Shift2]='Math'[Shift3] && 'Math'[Shift3]='Math'[Shift4] && 'Math'[Shift4]='Math'[Shift5],
3,
1)

Try this

BalanceScore =
SWITCH(
    TRUE(),
    AND(
        [Shift3] = [Shift4],
        [Shift4] = [Shift5]
    ), 3,
    AND(
        [Shift1] = [Shift2],
        [Shift3] = [Shift4]
    ), 1,
    1
)

@salman_ali 

You can use && instead of AND().

 

BalanceScore = Switch( True(), 
[Shift1]=[Shift2] && [Shift1]=[Shift3] && [Shift1]=[Shift4] && [Shift1]=[Shift5]) , 3,
1)

 

But It is not necessary to use Switch, you use switch when you want more 2 results.

 

BalanceScore = IF([Shift1]=[Shift2] && [Shift1]=[Shift3] && [Shift1]=[Shift4] && [Shift1]=[Shift5]), 3 ,1)
