DAX - IF AND OR - Calculated column

I have the column below in a powerpivot date model

Payment terms
60
45
30
35

I want to add a calculated column with an if statement that will return new values based on the following conditions

If column "payment terms" contains values 45 or 30 or 35 then return 30 and if it contains 60 then return "58"

I know in standard excel this formula would work =IF(OR(A1=45,A1=35,A1=30),30,58)

I've tried replicating in my data model but I'm getting an error.

In fact that is not a DAX formula and you cannot insert a calculated column with that formula.

Sorry I could just as easily have given the points to you. I have another question I've just opened if you're interested.

No. I am not concerned with the points here but I just wanted to know that how did you choose the best solution?
Is that a DAX formula?

Yes it is, I was impressed to learn that the double pipe (||) could be used for "or"

Please don't misunderstand me. I was not rude at all.
I was just surprised how did the best solution could be implemented in Power Pivot Data Model.
You know that the A1 style notations don't work in Power Pivot. And as far as using || for OR is concerned, that's a pretty basic thing in Power Pivot.

I know, although I think Rogonzo was aware that I wanted a DAX solution. He provided the same logic in my previous question where I specifically asked for a DAX solution (link below). We both knew that the "A" reference must be substituted with a column reference.

Although like I said, I could just as easily have given the points to you.

Thanks
