University level question on relativity

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution

momentum before is gamma*pionmass*0.93c

momentum after is gamma(u)*mass(u)*velocity(u) - E/c where E=pc which is the energy of massless particles

energy before is gamma*pionmass*c*c

energy after is gamma*mass(u)*c*c + pc

just wondering if what ive done above is correct as ive tried to do it that way and i get a really ridiculous answer. Any help is appreciated
