Solved hourly, daily and weekly backups - what do they consist of ?

December 1, 2014 at 17:15:00
Specs: Is x.9, 600/256
The Mac application Time Machine says it creates

- hourly backups for the past 24 hours
- daily backups for the past month
- weekly backups for all previous months

I am confused with what each (hourly, daily, weekly) backups will consist of?

--- will hourly backups only have changes made hourly? so 24 each day, as long as computer is on for 24 hours.

--- will daily backups contain all the changes that were done each day, into one backup date?
--- will weekly backups contain all changes that were done weekly, into one backup date?

for example September has 30 days; will there be 4 weekly backups in Time Machine for the month of Sept that consist of all the changes done for each week? along with 30 daily backups for that month (if the computer was turned on each day), daily backup will consist of all changes made in that one day?
and for each singly day 24 hourly backups?
