51% whiteness in breed standard

Question:

I am curious just how the percentage of whiteness is evaluated in Jack Russells in order to determine whether a particular animal meets the "greater than 51% white" color standard. I ask because my puppy seems to be very close to 1/2 white, 1/2 black or brown. I'd hate her to miss the cutoff because of a subjective call on this particular characteristic.
