How many 16 penny nails in a pound?

Nails are graded by a system that refers to the size of their diameter, in units called a ';penny';, abbreviated ';d';. The larger the number, the larger the nail is in diameter.

A 16-penny nail is about 0.162 inches in diameter, and 3 1/2 inches long, and there are 44 to the pound.
