If you share workbook with info as on screenshot (not to retype from the screen to Excel) it will be much easier to suggest you correct formula.

I believe this is what you're looking to do:

PowerPivot can also make short work of this with Distinct Count.


It very depends on which edition of Excel you are. If on 365 when better formulas as above. If not, when

=SUMPRODUCT( ($J$9:$J$32=$N8)/COUNTIFS($I$9:$I$32,$I$9:$I$32, $J$9:$J$32,$J$9:$J$32))

could work. Please check in attached file.
