Not that it is any simpler or faster, but if you wanted to do this in plain SQL....

      *     1. Determine latest weekday in a derived table (x).
      *     2. & 3. Determine the count for all days with the same
      *           weekday in a derived table (y).
      *     4. Calculate mean, latest count, and variance using case.

     select last_date
     , avg(case when Bus_date < last_date then cnt end) as mean
     , sum(case when Bus_date = last_date then cnt end) as rec
     , (rec - mean)*100/mean as result
     from (
          select Bus_date, last_date, count(*) cnt
          from payments
          , (select max(Bus_date) last_date from payments)x
          where Bus_date > (last_date - 240)
               and Bus_date <= last_date
               and (last_date (format 'e3')) (char(3))
                    = (Bus_date (format 'e3')) (char(3))
          group by Bus_date, last_date
     group by last_date;
