A Strike is worth ten pins plus the total of the next two balls thrown. If you throw three strikes in a row, the first strike is worth 30 pins. If you throw a strike, then a spare. The strike is worth 20 pins total.

10 plus whatever you get on your next two throws. For instance, if you throw a strike on the first frame, then a strike on the second, and a strike on the third you will have 30 in the first frame. If you strike in the first frame, then strike in the second, and get a 7 on the first ball of the third frame you will have 27 in the first frame. And so on...

A strike is worth 10 + your next two rolls., A spare is 10 + your next 0ne roll. So if in the first frame you Roll a strike, then next frame you get 8 pinns on the first roll, and only 1 on the second. You have score 10 + 8+ 1=19. You would have 19 in the first frame and a total of 28 in the second.

A strike gives you ten points and the score of the next two balls. So at a minimum it will give you ten points and best case thirty points.
