Calculate % change based on slicer (not date format)

Hi! I'm trying to create a measure to calculate the % change of value based on my slicer selections (which is not in date format). 


Here's the sample of my data. My slicer will be "Semester" and I would like to calculate the difference between value based on the selected semesters (up to all of them). For example, if i select semester AH2019 and AH2021, it will show -8% decrease. if i select AH2019, AH2020, AH2021, it will show the % change between all 3 semesters (18.57%, -22%). 

Semester Value% difference 
AH 20197000 
AH 20208300 
AH 20216400 
SS 201910200 
SS 202018202 
SS 2021 8100 


Please kindly assist. Your help is much much appreciated.

Hello! Yes! Similar. I am trying to show something like this and would like to add the formula for the percentage change.

can you explain in detail how you got it -8%
what was taken away and what was divided.
show in numbers how it turned out -8%

-8% is (6400/7000)-1, the difference between just AH2021 and AH 2019, where 2021 is the newer value based on the year
