flushing radiator directions do not match what i see

buick park avenue 2003 has two hoses side by side going into the water pump housing. Directions for the flush kit for radiator says one is this and one is that but not which is which. - and they are so confused it says to ask a certified mechanic if uncertain.

I am a female - no excuse I know - but have no clue and am now asking anyone for some idea of how to figure out the one that goes to the water pump and the one that goes to the engine when they both go into the water pump housing -

Now what do I do?

The hose that goes to the heater core is "out", and the one from the block is "in". Does that help any? If you are still confused, note the direction of the rotation of the water pump with the engine running. The hose on the low side is "out"
