I don't understand how the number of repetitions is calculated for some complex cases with nested repetitions with floating sizes.

For example, let's take the second example in this page of the CityEngine Manual.

rhythm_example01 --> split(x){ ~2: X(2) | { ~1: Y(1.5) | ~1: Z(1) }* }*
...


Could you please explain, how the number of repetitions is calculated for that example?
Is the procedure described somewhere in the manual?

Thanks in advance!
