How to rosin and tighten a violin bow?

I just bought my first violin and I took out the rosin and found it to be crushed. I took out what I could and used it to rosin the bow. It sounds scratchy when I use it on the strings.

Is it suppose to sound scratchy?
Is it okay if the rosin is crushed?
How tight do I tighten the bow hairs?

The end of the bow (frog) has a piece that can be turned like a screw. Turning it clockwise tightens the bow. Tighten it so that the hair does not touch the stick, but the stick should still curve toward the hair.
The crushed rosin will make it easier to rosin the bow the first time, but you need to get a new cake.
The bow if moved slowly will sound scratchy at first.
Find a teacher and get some help.
Good Luck
