Scoring
It's easy once you get the hang of it

EXAMPLE 1
Frame     1     2     3     4     5     6     7     8     9     10         
John     9-0   3-5   6-1   3-6   8-1   5-3   2-5   8-0   7-1    8-1
Score     9    17    24    33    42    50    57    65    73     82
In Example 1 we omitted strikes and spares for simplicity. Each frame is totaled and added to the cumulative score.

EXAMPLE 2
Frame     1     2     3     4     5     6     7     8     9     10         
Mary     9-0   3/    6-1   3/    8-1   5/    0/    8-0   7/     8/8
Score     9    25    32    50    59    69    87    95    113    131
In Example 2 we learn how to score spares and open frames together. A spare is scored as 10, plus the pinfall of the next ball rolled. This total is added to the cumulative score.

Frame 1) Count 9 pins
Frame 2) Spare (10), plus next ball (6) added to score = 25
Frame 3) Count 7 pins and add to score = 32
Frame 4) Spare (10), plus next ball (8) added to score = 50
Frame 5) Count 9 pins and add to score = 59
Frame 6) Spare (10), plus next ball (0) added to score = 69
Frame 7) Spare (10), plus next ball (8) added to score = 87
Frame 8) Count 8 pins and add to score = 95
Frame 9) Spare (10), plus next ball (8) added to score = 113
Frame 10) Add (10), plus 8 to score = 131

Example 3
Frame     1     2     3     4     5     6     7     8     9     10         
Kim       X    3/    6-1    X     X     X    2/    9-0    7/    XXX
Score     20   36    43    73    95    115  134    143   163    193
In Example 2 we learn how to score strikes, spares and open frames together. As previously demonstrated, a spare is scored as 10, plus the pinfall of the next ball rolled. A strike is scored as 10, plus the pinfall of the next 2 balls rolled. This total is added to the cumulative score.

Frame 1) Strike (10), plus next 2 balls (3)(7) = 20
Frame 2) Spare (10), plus next ball (6) added to score = 36
Frame 3) Count 7 pins and add to score = 43
Frame 4) Strike (10), plus next 2 balls (10)(10) add to score = 73
Frame 5) Strike (10), plus next 2 balls (10)(2) add to score = 95
Frame 6) Strike (10), plus next 2 balls (2)(8) add to score = 115
Frame 7) Spare (10), plus next ball (9) added to score = 134
Frame 8) Count 9 pins and add to score = 143
Frame 9) Spare (10), plus next ball (10) added to score = 163
Frame 10) Strike (10), Strike (10), Strike (10) = 193
