Explain XG rollout results to the not bot-savvy

As part of my effort to generate and maintain interest in our Miami group (www.MiamiBackgammon.com), I have started sending subscribers of our mailing list a weekly set of backgammon problems (checker play and cube decisions). I will continue to do so as long as there is interest in them. The sets will consist of 4 to 10 problems.
Being a donkey, I am not qualified to comment on the solutions to the problems, so I rely solely on the XG rollouts.
Some, and I assume most, of the recipients are not bot-savvy, so I am looking for a crisp explanation of the XG rollout numbers (e.g., equity, confidence interval, chances of being the best play, etc.).
Please let me know where I can direct folk to learn to interpret the XG rollout results.
P.S.: I you want copies of the weekly problem sets, let me know and I will add you to the mailing list.
