Scenes and frames?

I am an amateur with Flash. I can make simple flash animations but there are some things I don't really know. Sometimes, I learn things the hard way (not by reading book).

The question is, what is the difference between frames and scenes? I'm accustomed to multimedia (digital video) so I know frames to be a picture/photo/object that makes up part of the movie. I haven't done flash in a while, but I think I made my flash animations with objects changing between scenes with each scene having only 1 frame. I only used the stop action on the frame of the last scene to stop my flash movie. I need to know what scenes are for and what frames are for so I can better understand and use Flash. I hate reading the books.

frames are on your movie time line they are the individual instance that happen
scenes are a group of many frames on one timeline
to add a scene you go to drop downs view/ panels/ scene
there you can add ascene by cliccking on the plus button on the panel
