i know what it is and so on , but why do people consider going from C to F to Bb
going up in fifths these are fourths ?

That's moving down a fifth, which is the same as moving up a fourth. You travel one way around the circle descending and the other ascending.

well, you're going backwards. Bb-F is a 5th. F-C is a 5th. you're just reading it backwards.

also when you're descending a scale, it tends to be the 5th note you play.

i dont get it , a interval from c to f is a forth no matter how you look at it

so to me a circle of fiths is going from C-G-D so on and the circle of forths is the
other way .

i know your right though because this is the way i see it explained all the time .

A perfect fifth represents 7 semi-tones while a perfect fourth is 5, correct?

Ascending perfect fifth:

C Db D Eb E F Gb G
0 1  2 3  4 5 6  7


Ascending perfect fourth:

C Db D Eb E F
0 1  2 3  4 5


Descending perfect fifth:

C B Bb A Ab G Gb F
0 1 2  3 4  5 6  7


Descending perfect fourth:

C B Bb A Ab G
0 1 2  3 4  5


In the same way, moving from C - E is a major 3rd if you ascend and a minor sixth if you descend. The same could be said of all intervals.
