i know the obvious of reading a scoresheet... but I don't understand the 1-2, 1-3, 1-4, 1-5 of each individual dance. What does that represent and how is it determined? Please explain.

here is a sample sheet. This one is a bit "incorrect" in layout as it only says 1st - 2nd - 3rd- 4th ...
instead of traditional 1, 1-2, 1-3, 1-4...

so you can see couple A received no 1st place marks. They received one 2nd place mark. They received three 3rd place OR BETTER (or 1st thru 3rd) (or 1-3) marks. They received five 4th place OR BETTER marks (aka 1-4). And then you stop adding after that because five is the magic number for this event, as it is a majority and any marks beyond that can't affect the placement.
