Question regarding the fifth nail

One thing I have been pondering since I first heard about the fifth nail...
(please correct me if I am wrong)
In all of the paintings I have seen of the crucifiction, I only see 3 nails. One in each hand (wrist) and one through the feet.
Where did the fifth nail come from? Shouldn't that be the fourth?

Yes, you're right. I guess it's no secret that he wasn't much of a bible scholar

Actually, I was taught growing up that there were four nails--1 in each wrist and 1 through each ankle.
