    Please give a detailed list of the chemicals you bought.

    Most chemicals come with mixing instructions and some notes on how to use them, but I'm sure people here will be able to help if they know what you have.

    All Ilford chemicals come with very good instructions, read them and follow them, but with Multigrade dilute 1/9 for 1 litre 100 ml then add water to litre,for the fixer dilute 1/9 for paper and 1/4 for film. stop and ilfosol follow the very good instructions

    When mixing chems, remember to clearly label the bottles you are storing the solutions in. Also, mix two seperate batches of fix and stop. Use one bottle of each for film and paper and never use paper chems on film, this avoids debris contamination to film.

    The dilutions are just as stated, 1 part stock chem plus 19 parts water for a total of 20 parts. 1 fluid oz chem plus 19 fluid oz water to make 20fluid oz of solution.

    1+9 means to mix 1 part of the concentrate in the bottle with 9 parts of water (for a total of 10 parts) to make a working solution. For example, 100ml + 900ml to make 1000ml (1 liter) of working solution.

    1+3, 1+19, etc. are similar: 1 part whatever to 3 or 19 parts water to make a working solution.

    I'd recommend that you read up on everything before doing any actual developing. It seems you are not familiar enough with the basics to jump into processing. Take the time you need to be reasonably confident that you know how the process works before trying it out in order to avoid mistakes.
    And, don't hesitate to ask questions here and elsewhere if you need to.

    Good luck,
