New light fixture question

Hanging New Light Fixture and all the wires that came with my new light fixture are the same color (Silver). One is just a plan Silver wire and the other 2 (looks like two wires together) are covered in rubber. How do I know which ones are which.

Welcome to the forums.

The single un-insulated wire is the ground wire.
With the rubber coated wiring..... the ribbed or grooved or striped side is neutral/white.
The smooth side would be hot.

If this isn't helpful then we'll need to see a picture of your wire..... how-to-insert-pictures.
