hello can anyone explain me how you number the carbons in carbohydrates i am really confused. Here it says that you number the carbons anticlockwise from the oxygen but in the diagram next to it the carbon no1 is next to the O in a clockwise direction.

Featured snippet from the web
These characteristics are combined to name monosaccharide carbohydrates. Three carbon monosaccharides are called trioses, four carbon are called tetroses, five carbon are called pentoses, six carbon are hexoses, and so on. The number of carbon atoms in a molecule is used in the suffix of carbohydrate naming.
