Fill in the blank of the following DAX expression for a new column that will compute the sales projection as the current year's sales plus 12 percent growth:

Next Year Sale =  * 1.12

3. Profit Percentage

DAX Measure

A Power BI report has a measure declared as:

Profit percentage = SUM(financials[Profit]) / CALCULATE(SUM(financials[Profit]), ALL(financials))

Select all the true statements if the "Profit percentage" is used as a value in a bar chart where Country is the axis.

(Select all acceptable answers.)

If there are multiple countries, the value of "Profit percentage" for each country will be 1.
If all rows in financials have a Country set, the sum of all "Profit percentage" columns in the chart will be 1.
If some countries are disabled by a page level filter, the value of each "Profit percentage" column will change.
If some countries are disabled by a visual level filter, the sum of all "Profit percentage" columns might not be 1.
