How can you tell which stripe on a resistor is either the first or last (tolerance) stripe? Thanks!

In reality you don't know which way it reads, but typically the tolerance one is gold or silver, which is not an available color for the values. The easiest way to figure it out in my opinion is to just use a multimeter on the resistor mode

The last stripe is silver or gold so you can tell.
