How many SG points will one pound of light DME add in 5 gallons of water?

The extract potential of light or extra light DME is generally considered to be 45 points per pound per gallon. In 5 gallons that would be 45 divided by 5, or 1.009. Therefore a pound of DME will add 9 points to 5 gallons.

Thank you.

Was way off my target this weekend, did not have any DME but the question came up in my mind.
