% change  =   [   ( New Mass - Old Mass ) / (Old Mass ) * 100 ] %

 

So...for the first one we have

 

 [   ( 86.6 - 92.0 ) / 92.0   *   100  ] %  =   [ - 5.4 / 92  * 100 ] %  ≈ [ -5.87] %    (decrease )

 

 

Second one

 

[  (94.4 - 89.3 )  / 89.3   * 100 ] %  =  [ 5.1 / 89.3  * 100 ] %  ≈   [5.71 ]%    (increase)
