Eggs yolk and white nutrition breakdown

The eggs I eat claim to have 5g of fat and 9g of protein (Jumbo) What is the breakdown of yolk and white from these eggs?


I would guess:

Whites .........0g fat.......~4.5g protein


Yolks............5g fat........~4.5g protein.


But honestly I have no clue.

    It's not quite a 50/50 split..... but it's near as damn it for my maths. Fats are in the yolks yes.

    You know what, at this time of the night, I can't recall what way the balance is tipped. It does come up here often tho so if you search it you should get what you want.
