The size of the code doesn't matter as far as CPU is concerned - what it's actually doing, and how often, does.

I'm not sure what you're doing in the second snippet, so I cannot really comment. In the first snippet, however, you are performing calculations whenever the GameTooltip updates in its OnUpdate script. The OnUpdate script fires every time your screen is updated, so if you are getting 120FPS in game your code is running that many times per second.
Whenever someone says "pls" because it's shorter than "please", I say "no" because it's shorter than "yes".
