When I vote to close a question that is duplicating another one, I get a list of questions with some numbers.

What is their meaning?

    The numbers on the left are probably "match" scores, similar to how answers/questions are given "quality" scores. The numbers on the right seem to be the number of times a question was linked as a duplicate on other questions. – simchona Sep 10 '11 at 18:20

The numbers on the right (again, my cursor was hovering over them but you can't see it here) give the number of times a question has been linked to, or voted as a duplicate:
