very basic question

Hi I'm new and a bit of a beginner…
To start a chain you do the basic knot… then you chain 1.. that is the first chain, right.?. You don't count the loop from the beginning knot, right?

I was following a tutorial pattern.. "start with 49 chains.. but she showed the knot as the first chain.

Such a basic question.. am I making sense?

Thank you for your help!

When I do a starting chain, I add a few extra so on the first row going back, I crochet the amount I need and have some to undo instead of not counting correctly and running out of chains. I call it insurance and saves a lot of time.
