    ok this is what i think you do but i'm not 100% sure.
    Because you use the scales twice for one mass change measurement the most it could be wrong by is 2*0/01=0.02. For the final measurement ((1.03-(1.03+0.02))/1.03) *100 gives the maximum % error in the 1.03 result. I got 1.94%. I'm really not sure tho
