It's a good question, and the answer is you have to read it properly.
I have 20 jelly beans and I gain a jelly bean. Now I have 21, or in other words, I have (21-20)/20 = 4.7% more.
What if I lost a jelly bean? Well now I have (19-20)/20 = 5.0% less jelly beans.
It's just a math thing that causes the difference.
Same thing going on in my numbers, good observation though.
