Position of Missing tooth when #1 Cyl @ TDC ?

Sorry to ask but I have read too much about this that I am not sure. At what position is the missing tooth on the crank position device (ring with the teeth on it) when cylinder #1 is at TDC?

I bolded a few thing because I have problems seeing small font, others may too.

EDIT: At what degree, thanks.

I need to unload the last 2 of the above.

The center of the gap is 60 past the crankshaft position (CKP) sensor at TDC. In other words, the CKP sensor is above the sixth tooth from the gap.
