Crap day made slightly better by a chai tea latte.

well this is helpful

Ohhh

This helps but like why do judges give scores w decimals, like throughout the week I saw numbers like 55.5 or 24.33

It&#8217;s the difference between the two marks. So if you get joint 3rd it&#8217;s 62.5. That the 5 points difference between 3rd (65) and 4th (60) split between two dancers. You both get 62.5. Easy, yes?
