door open/close direction install inquiry

I'm needing to install a right-handed door that opens to the inside, like shown at the top of the following diagram:



I have the rough opening already and there is a person selling two pre-hung doors, one of them is labeled on the jamb label/sticker "left hinged" and one is labeled "right hinged". The following two pictures, sent to me by the seller, are of the two separate doors. Can somebody tell me by looking whether either of these with the jamb will install/work as I need as I indicated in the diagram?

The top door is RH, the bottom door is LH. So yeah, the top one will work.

Ok thanks XSleeper. So the side of the door shown in the first picture would end up being on the inside of the square room (when the door is closed) as shown in my diagram? Correct?

The top door as shown is just as it appears on the top of your drawing. Can't you see the strike plate?

Ok yes, gotcha. Good, thanks again... I was just uncertain from the beginning, looking at the pictures. I appreciate the helpful confirmation!
