    @Cody Gray, this is not a duplicate. It's the opposite of the question you link to. Easy on the trigger finger there, Tejas. – MrBoJangles Dec 6 '11 at 23:29

It shows the sum of all upvotes you got per question. In total you got two upvotes. If you hover over the "upvote" text for each row, it tells you how many upvotes that row represents.

"set transparent background of an imageview in Android" is an answer, which gets +10 reputation per upvote.

"How to develop one Android application for different screens?" is a question, which gets +5 per upvote.
