How do you read a climb profile?

Hey guys.

I was planning for a 747-8 flight and noticed this. I’m not sure how this works, so could someone please explain how to read and fly with a climb profile? I assume it’s measured in flight levels.

Mine is as follows:

Climb Profile: 250/340/84

I searched for a little while and couldn’t find anything. Thanks!

250: speed (in knots) to fly below 10,000 feet
340: speed (in knots) to fly above 10,000 feet
84: your mach speed (Mach 0.84) = 340 knots
