There are two mistakes in your solution. First, the bonus ball(s), i.e. the extra ball for a spare or extra two balls for a strike in the tenth frame, are only counted once. You've counted the 6 at the end twice.

Second, when a spare is scored, that frame scores exactly 10 plus the next ball. You're scoring 10 for the spare, plus the first ball, plus the next ball. For example, for 3 / 6, you counted the three twice, once by itself and once as part of the spare.

Here's how this would actually be scored, going bottom to top:

```ball score total
5     -   146
/    16   146
6     6   130
3     3   124
X    27   121
X    17    94
7     7    77
0     0    70
4     4    70
3     3    66
X    20    63
4     -    43
/    18    43
8     8    25
1     1    17
3     -    16
/    16    16
6     -
