How to Read Your Meter
- Read the numbers for each dial going from right to left.
- Always read the numbers in the direction the arrow on the dial is pointing.
- If the pointer is between two numbers, always select the smaller number, unless the pointer is between 0 and 9, then select 9.
- If a pointer is directly on a number, look at the dial to its immediate right. If its pointer has not passed zero, record the lower number.
The reading for this example is 2984.
