I have a tag that has this information:

102 TagName x113

When I hover over it, it says:

"Asked 12 non-wiki questions with a total score of 64.
Answered 101 non-wiki questions with a total score of 102."

So, what's the x113 ?
How is everything counted (I earned much more than 102 points).

And when will I get the tag badge ?

12 + 101 = 251? – random May 25 '11 at 19:48
That's real information from my user – Yochai Timmer May 25 '11 at 19:51

The first number is the total score on just the non-wiki answers you've given. This number is relevant because it is what is used to determine when you have earned a tag badge. Note that this number is the total score, not the total amount of Rep you earned. If you had 4 upvotes and a downvote on an answer, it would contribute 3 to your total score, but 38 to your total Rep.

The second number is the total number of posts you've made (questions and answers, wiki and non-wiki) that involved that tag. You appear to have no wiki posts, since 12 questions + 101 answers = 113 posts. I, for example, currently have 937 posts for the matlab tag, and my hover text tells me I have 1 non-wiki question and 933 non-wiki answers. The three missing wiki answers can be seen here.

The first number is your summed vote score of all non-wiki answers in that tag, with the hover clarifying that point. If you hover over it, as you can see, it tells you the breakout of your non-wiki posts in general.

The second number is the number of all questions and answers you have for that tag, regardless of wiki status.

The first number is the score

The second number is the number of question + number of answer.
