Mark 21:21..Jesus replied, "Truly I tell you, if you have faith and do not doubt, not only can you do what was done to the fig tree, but also you can say to this mountain, 'Go, throw yourself into the sea,' and it will be done(New International version)

Then Jesus told them, "I tell you the truth, if you have faith and don't doubt, you can do things like this and much more. You can even say to this mountain, 'May you be lifted up and thrown into the sea,' and it will happen.(New Living translation)

Mark 11:23...Jesus replied, "Truly I tell you, if you have faith and do not doubt, not only can you do what was done to the fig tree, but also you can say to this mountain, 'Go, throw yourself into the sea,' and it will be done.(New International version)

Then Jesus told them, "I tell you the truth, if you have faith and don't doubt, you can do things like this and much more. You can even say to this mountain, 'May you be lifted up and thrown into the sea,' and it will happen.(New living translation)

Both Mathew and Mark have said the same thing while writing to their recipients. Have it mind that Mathew is writing to the Jews and Mark to the Gentiles.

As we can see the translators have differed in translating some words but the most distinct is the word YOU CAN AND YOU CAN EVEN.

εἴπητε (eipēte) is a verb which means it is a doing word which is in Aorist Tense from the lexical form  λέγω (lego) meaning say or speak.

Eipete 

which the translators have translated YOU CAN SAY AND YOU CAN EVEN SAY, can as well mean command, bid or bring a word.
