Hi, I'm Mike G and I'll be assisting you. How many wire and what are their colors? Do you have a 2 wire voltage tester?
The wire connecting both switches is the hot wire. If I understood your question you are installing a double switch. If so, the hot wire terminates on the black screw and the remaining connect to the 2 gold screws.
Anytime, you're welcome.
