right amount of pasta such as spaghetti per one person either in terms of pound or gram???

hey! usually when i read some of the recipes related with pasta from some cookbooks such as batali's , usually instructions is like 1 pound per 4 persons. so when it was divided into the amount of one person, it seems either 1/4 pound or 110~113 grams. but the dried pasta such as spaghetti i buy usually is packaged as a 500 grams bundle. and in the package it says about 100 grams per person for consuming.
when the recipes in US says pasta is about a pound per 4 persons, could the pound mean roguhly 400 grams rather than either 440 or 450 grams?
