There are two ways to think about this change: firstly in terms of the amount of light energy. The rule for magnitudes is that "five magnitudes is a factor of 100" So to find the change in luminosity between two magnitudes you can calculate $$\Delta L=100^{(M_1-M_2)/5}$$ With your values I get 0.47, or about half as bright at full eclipse. The ...
