The "-x" refers the amount one can miss and still hit a 170 on the LSAT. The curve is determined by the people who produce the LSAT prior
to the administration of the test based how difficult they believe it to be.
I always thought this was weird, because I would assume they could calculate a much more accurate curve by seeing how people actually scored relative to other tests rather than trying to gauge how difficult the test is beforehand.
