MX ASA/ISO setting question


I just put a iso 50 Film into my MX and now I'm not sure at which setting I should put the ASA.
There a 2 dots between the 32 and 64 ASA settings and I have no idea, which one of them is 50(if at all).

I searched with every keyword that came to my mind, but I coiuldn't find any answer.

Thanks for your help.

That's correct, 50 is one dot lower than 64
