Default Reading recipes correctly

I have a question regarding the hops schedule I see in many recipes. For example:

Hops:
.25 oz Chinook Pellets (12.4) 50 min
.25 oz Chinook Pellets (12.4) 30 min
.25 oz Chinook Pellets (12.4) 20 min
1.0 oz Chinook Pellets (12.4) 10 min

Does the first row mean with 50 min left in the boil or at the 50 minute mark of the boil?

it means the time remaining on the boil...

so that first addition gets boiled for 50 minutes, and the last 1 ounce gets boiled for 10 minutes...

I believe it means you boil the hops for 50 minutes, so 10 minutes into a 60-min boil
