If your pieces used total more than +20 points, divide it by 2, else deduct 10 points.

For example, if you scored +30 for pieces used, it makes more sense to divide by 2 for +15 than to deduct 10 for +20. Likewise if you scored +12, it makes more sense to deduct 10 for +2 than to divide by 2 for +6.

As far as I'm aware, it almost never helps to divide by 2, because most levels with hap scoring don't require 20+ pieces. I just copied and pasted the scoring from a different hap comp, so I figured I'd leave the divide by 2 option even though it is almost never necessary.

Not true,
My huge entries almost always go with the divide by 2, albeit I also almost always take a sweet spot in last..

I apologize to Great Britain for omitting their design from the results, and to Mars, for having to kick them out of their bronze medal =/. My mistake.
