A complete score is now made up of two parts, A and B. The first, the A score, or the start value, is an assigned degree of difficulty.I n this instance, both He and Liukin had the same start value, 7.7. The second part of a score, the B score, is an execution score. Six judges vote. The high and the low are tossed per the rules. Working the numbers That leaves four scores. Those four are averaged. That average becomes the B score. Add the A and B together and you get a complete score. In this instance, both He and Liukin got 16.725. Thus: onto tiebreakers. The first tiebreak is the B score. Here both got the same B score, 9.025. The next tiebreak: the judges drop the next highest deduction. That obviously leaves three judges' scores instead of four -- or to be precise, the marks those three judges gave for deductions. Here, the average of those three judges' deductions for He: .933. For Liukin: .966. Liukin had a greater deduction. Thus she was second. Another way of getting to that math: Take the B scores of the three judges from that second tie-break, add them together and divide by three. The math for He: 9.1, 9.1, 9.0. That equals 27.2. Divide that by three, and that equals 9.066, the sixes stretching out to infinity. For Liukin: 9.1, 9.0, 9.0. That equals 27.1. Divide that by three and it's 9.0333, the threes going out forever. Thus she was second. Which, all the same, didn't make it any easier. Because even if the math is right, it's logically still just naturally tough to get. "Seeing the exact same score and 'second' next to my name," Liukin said, "made it a little bit harder." So i ask you fu friends, does this make any sense to you? nt to mention this all stems from a girl who thechinese gov. admitted was only 13! and to copete in the games you must be at least 16! the math doesn't work here either!
