In the last frame you get a chance of Bowling 3 balls. You can get three strikes, a strike and a spare (a spare is two balls) or a spare and a strike.
The absolute lowest score would be 60. First frame - Strike Second frame - Two Gutter Balls Third frame - Strike Fourth frame - Two Gutter Balls Fifth frame - Strike Sixth frame - Two Gutter Balls Seventh frame - Two Gutter Balls Eighth frame - Two Gutter Balls Ninth frame - Two Gutter Balls Tenth frame - 3 Strikes (Total points here = 30)
Frames 1-9 you throw 9 balls (strikes) Frame 10 you throw at least 2 not getting a spare. You total amount is 11.
That would depend on the weight of the bowling balls. If they were 10 pounds each, that would be 700 pounds total.
26. Count ten pins plus the total of the next two balls in the strike frame, then add the total of the last two balls to the frame following the strike.
A strike means the next 2 balls count double, a spare means 10 points plus the next ball counts double. So a strike+spare is (10 + 10) = 20 for frame 1, and 10 more for frame 2, and the next ball counts double (and is tallied in frame 2):frame 1: 20 (total = 20)frame 2: 10 + next ball (total = 30+)frame 3: next ballA spare followed by a strike works out the same: 10 + 2*(10) = 30, and the next two balls (because of the strike) counts double. In long form, (x) + (10-x) + 2*(10).frame 1: 20 (total = 20)frame 2: 10 + next 2 balls (total = 30+)frame 3: next 2 ballsA game of all strikes quickly adds to 300... if you keep doing strikes, each frame gives you 30 points because you get 10 for what you hit, plus double the next two balls (each of which gave you 10).
The amount of pins that you knock down after 10 frames. If you get a spare (knock down all 10 pins in two shots), the number of pins you knock down on your next throw get added to that frame. If you get a Strike(all 10 in one shot), you get the next two throws added to that frame. 9/ 90 9/ X X 90 10+9 = 19 (first frame) 19+9 = 28 (second frame) 28+10(spare)+10(strike in 4th frame) = 48 (third frame total) 48+10(strike)+10(strike in 5th frame) + 9(first ball in 6th frame) = 77 (4th frame total) 77+10(strike in 5th) + 9 0(2 balls in 6th frame) = 96 (5th frame total) 96 + 9(total from 6th frame) = 107 (6th frame total) Hope this helps.
If you did it in one try it's a strike. If you did it in two it's a spare.
If you knock down all the pins on your first ball of a frame it is a strike and you would add the pin total for the next 2 balls rolled. If it takes you both balls of a frame to knock down all the pins it is a spare and you would add the pin total for the next ball rolled.
A Spare is worth 10 pins plus the total pin count on the first ball of the very next frame. The possible total worth of a spare is 20 pins.
There is a site for all Bowling rules in the links section below. You throw the ball down the lane and hit as many pins as you can. if your foot crosses the black line at the beginning of the lane it is a foul and you get 0 points for that frame. If you get a Spare(/) then you get 10 points plus however many are scored in the first shot of the next frame. If you get a strike(X) it is 10 plus however many points you get total in the next frame, but, if you get 2 strikes in a row then it is 20 points plus however many you get in the frame after that. For example, if you get a strike in the 5th frame, a strike in the 6th frame, and 9 pins in the 7th frame. you will get 29 points for the 5th frame, 19 points for the 6th frame, and 9 points for the 7th frame.
In bowling, 'scratch' means without the handicap added in. A scratch game is the actual score of the game, whereas a handicap game is the scratch game and the handicap added together. So 'high game scratch' would be the highest game a person in the league or tournament bowled without adding in the handicap. For example, someone with a 12 handicap bowls a 249. The 'scratch' score is 249, the handicap score is 261.
288 is correctA strike is scored 10 pins plus the total of the next to balls thrown. Your 8th frame score is 240 after you threw the 10th strike. The ninth frame strike adds 10 to 240 plus the next two balls thrown in the 10th (X-9) brings the 9th frame total to 269. Close the 10th frame with 19 (X-9-0) your final score is 288
