Right hand rule – Magnetic field

1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

Conventional current flows in a ring in the direction indicated in the diagram (if you stand at location A, on the +x axis, and look toward the ring, current flows clockwise). At each of the locations labeled by a letter, use the right hand rule to find the direction of the magnetic field at that location, due to the current in the ring.

2. Relevant equations

Right hand rule

3. The attempt at a solution

I already know the answers, which was given to me:

Location A = -x
Location B = +x
Location C = -x
Location D = +x
Location E = +x
Location F = +x

But I don’t know how to apply the right hand rule to find the direction of the magnetic field? Can anyone explain it to me thoroughly, please?
