The implication with the second description is that the higher skill is not reduced.
 
 
Also note that another way to calculate this is to take the difference between the two skills, subtract that from 100, and use that for the lower skill. For example, 147% vs 137% has a difference of 10, so reduce the lower skill to 90%.
