First, find the average change for each concentration (add up and divide by number of tries). Then work out the percentage change for the average:

Change in mass (biggest minus smallest) divided by the original mass, then multiply by 100.

From the Latin 'cras', meaning tomorrow.

I'm not sure why the final masses have minuses, but I'll ignore those:

Average original mass:
1.31 + 1.36 = 2.67
2.67 divided by 2 = 1.335

Average end mass:
0.555 + 0.521 = 1.076
1.076 divided by 2 = 0.538

1.335 - 0.538 = 0.797

0.797 (change) divided by 1.335 (original) = 0.597

0.597 x 100 = average of 59.7% change

Hope this isn't too confusing!
