Question

Assitance needed - light fixture wiring complication


Hello,
So I removed my ceiling box cap to reveal an unexpected wire setup ...

The box has:
1. bundle of black (3)
2. bundle of white (3)
3. bundle of green? (3)
4. red wire (single) ... assuming it is the ground

Fixture has:

1. Single black
2. single white
3. single copper (ground)

I have tried researching this and still do not understand the layout or what connects to what - any help from experienced members on here would be greatly appreciated. I will try to post some pics as soon as my camera gets fixed. Thank you.

Connect your fixture to the following wires:

White to bundle of whites
Black to single red
Ground to bundle of greens.
