Points that each judge deducts for each incorrect execution and/or composition. Points are taken off a gymnast's score for any errors. Most deductions are pre-determined, such as a 0.5 deduction for a fall from an apparatus or a 0.1 deduction for stepping out of bounds on the floor exercise. Small deductions are .1 and judges now often take off a half a tenth. Medium deductions are .2 and large deductions are .3. At the end of the routine the deductions are added up together and are deducted from 10.0 (or the starting value of the routine) in order to give the final gymnast's score.

The amount deducted from the contract sum by a change order.
The contract clause, Inspection of Services, provides a means to reduce payment to the contractor for services not satisfactorily performed by the contractor. In short, if the Government does not receive the service, it does not pay the contractor. The procedure for withholding payments to a contractor is referred to as "deduction." To legally make a deduction from a contractor payment, the amount deducted must correlate to the price of the service not performed; it may not be an arbitrary figure. Thus, it is necessary to determine what percentage of the total cost of a contract each service performed under that contract represents.
