WHM - Discrepancy in memory used

This should be a real easy question for someone, but it has me stumped

I'm using a Linux-based VPS server with WHM and cPanel.

In WHM, under Service Status, I'm showing 65-70% memory use.  This is cutting things a bit close, and I was considering buying more memory.

However, I noticed that if I go to Show Current CPU Usage, and total up all the Mem% numbers, I consistently come up with a number that's FAR short of what Service Status is reporting (i.e., 35-40%).

This is a big discrepancy.  Which one should I believe and what accounts for the difference?

TIA for your help.
