Dax for below requirement

i have requirement like this 

create a 'consumption rate' metric, which takes into consideration order size and frequency.

  • Example: doctor office purchases 4 cases, and then the following month purchases 8 cases. This implies they have used 4 cases / month, and so their reorder would last for two months

Hi @Ruthwiksai_2021 ,

In order to provide you a suitable solution, could you please share some sample data in your tables(exclude sensitive data) and your expected result with backend logic and special examples. Thank you.

1. Sample data

Col1 Col2 Col3
xx xx xx
xx xx xx

2. Calculation logic

consumption rate=(number of cases)/(count of months in selected date period)?

3. Expected result with special examples

Col1 Col2 consumption rate
xx xx ?
xx xx ?

Best Regards

@Ruthwiksai_2021 , It would like

divide( count(table[Cases]), distinctcount(Table[Year Month]))


If this does not help
Can you share sample data and sample output in table format? Or a sample pbix after removing sensitive data.
