Create a fourth table to hold your measures, and create and show two simple measures and a table to display them in:
Create two simple measures to show the average box office takings and average budget spend for each film in millions of dollars, and show the measures in a table.
Now create and show a measure called Average profit margin showing that the film business is a good one to be in (at least for the films listed in the Wise Owl table):
