Actually it's because 1 strike is worth 10 points, 2 strikes in a row is worth 20 points and 3 or more strikes in a row is worth 30 points for each strike. This is why the machine has to wait to see your next score because if you get another strike your score increases.

The score: (25) + (15+b) + (5+b) + (19) + (20) + (30) + (20+c) + (10+c+d) + (c+d) + (5) = 180
2b + 3c + 2d = 31
I don't know what "missed a bit" means, so I'll ignore it. Only other info is that 88 was achieved at some point.
A little bit of checking shows that this means that 84 + 2b = 88
b = 2
Unfortunately this gives 3c + 2d = 27. This is only possible if you got a spare for c,d. This completely changes all working so either there is a mistake in your memory or in my working. If it is possible you got this spare, see the next spoiler.
