Tire numbers (was: 17 inch tire size for A4 - advice summary)

The width of the tire in mm and the height as a percentage of the width,
e.g., the 225/40 tire would be 225mm wide and (225*.40) = 90mm tall.

Pardon my ignorance...

I know that the last number in the tire description is the width, but
are the first two?  (225/40)
