How do I stroke the Chinese character 率?

Question by Arthur: How do I stroke the Chinese character 率?
I think I get the basic rules of stroking but what is bothering me is the stroke (strokes?) in the middle. I can’t figure out how to stroke that particular area. I know that you have to stroke horizontals first and go from left to right, top to bottom, but what about that symbol in the middle? I can’t figure out how to stroke it.

Best answer:

Answer by H. M. C
Even in China now it is acceptable to use 1, 2, 3 and 4 to denote the tones.

率 is lv4, pronounced same as 绿, the color green.

率 pronounced shuai4, is used as in 率先 leading.

Yes, there are notations over and above the letters similar to the Latin approach, but this is simpler and easier to learn.

    After finishing with the top part, start with the centre, then the 2 “flicks” on each side (left side first, then the right).

    In other words you’re actually writing the character 玄 first (with the top horizontal line stretched a bit), then the flicks on each side, and a 十 at the bottom.
