# What does 着 mean in 「六時着」 and in 「六着」?

One of the kanji we recently learned in class was 着. We learned it could be used for to wear [着]{き}る, to arrive [着]{つ}く, and as either a "classifier for arrival" or a "counter for jacket".

In our homework, we have the following 2:

1. [六]{ろく}[時]{じ}[着]{ちゃく}
2. [六]{ろく}[着]{ちゃく}

I am not sure how the classifier and counter work. This is what I think they mean:

1. 6 o'clock arrival (like as in an appointment)
2. 6th arrival (as in the 6th person to arrive) or 6 jackets

Is this the correct way to use the kanji?

Then how do you say 6 arrivals? –  oldergod May 2 '13 at 4:31
