Better late than never.....
The top number of the time signature tells you how many beats there are in each measure, and the bottom number tells you what kind of note gets the beat. So, 6/8 time, 6 eighth notes makes up one measure.
Hope this helps, and I hope you've learned not to procrastinate on your homework again.
