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 -
