Which ND filter is 6 stop?

What do the numbers on ND filters mean?

5 ND 1.5
6 ND 1.8
6 2/3 ND 2
7 ND 2.1

How are ND filters measured?

ND filters are rated in the amount of light that they reduce coming into the lens. so if we say this is an nd filter with the one-stop intensity that means it would let in half the amount of light as it did before and this is how nd filters are rated. So they have different intensities from 1-9 or 10,000?
