The different numbers are for the different sizes, so bind off however many for your size (2 or 3) at the beginning of the next whatever rows. The final number is how many sts you'll have left after binding off the rows.

You can't BO at the end of a row, so you do it at the beg of the next row. That makes a BO on both sides of the piece, which is what is needed. Try it and see how it works.
