I am new to MDX. I have below query:

WITH MEMBER [Student Study Length Hours]
AS ([Measures].[Study Length Minutes]/[Measures].[Students]/60.0)
SELECT {[Student Study Length Hours]
,[Measures].[Study Length Minutes]
,[Measures].[Students} ON COLUMNS
FROM [Classroom]
WHERE {[Student Participants].[Student Type].&[100], [Student Participants].[Student Type].&[400]}

In the cube, I then created the below calculated member, using the info from the query above, and I wanted to included the
conditions I have in the where clause above, but I do not know how to add those conditions into the calculated member below,
as I understand the WHERE clause is not allowed in the calculated member. Any help and input you can provide would be greatly appreciated.

CREATE MEMBER CURRENTCUBE.[Measures].[Student Study Length Hours]
AS ([Measures].[Study Length Minutes]/[Measures].[Students]/60.0),
VISIBLE = 1 , ASSOCIATED_MEASURE_GROUP = 'Student Study';

I have googled all over, but I have not been able to find one example addresses the where clause I have as above.
In SQL, it would be the where clause with StudentType IN(100,400). But how do I do that in calculated member?

First try moving the set in the WHERE clause to the "ON ROWS" axis. Do you then get what you want?
