Yes, the first three boxes at the top of the VirusTotal dashboard are the following:

Hits, Misses, and Total Engines. Hits mean that a scan engine found that hash or URL to be dirty. A miss means that a scan engine did not find the hash or URL to be dirty. Total engines should be the sum of the previous two numbers.

You can verify that information by looking at the VT Hit Details information below. That is a table that sorts hits to the top of the list.

Feel free to run the demo hash to see how it works: 57f222d8fbe0e290b4bf8eaa994ac641

Enjoy!
