# What are Roman Numerals?

Roman Numerals are what Romans used to use for numbers. Differentsymbols have different numeral values. For example, I = 1, V = 5,and X = 10. When these symbols are combined i…n different ways theother numbers are formed. There are several rules for the placementof the symbols. .
You may place up to 3 of the same symbol adjacent to each otherto indicate addition. For example: I = 1; II = 1+1 = 2; III = 1+1+1= 3. Note that IIII is not proper because you may have no more than3 of the same symbol in a row. .
You may place a smaller symbol after a larger one to indicateaddition. For example: V = 5; VI = 5+1 = 6; VII = 5+1+1 = 7; VIII =5+1+1+1 = 8. Again VIIII would not be proper because there are 4 Isimmediately adjacent to each other. .
You may place a smaller symbol immediately before a largersymbol to indicate subtraction. For example IV = 5-1 = 4; IX = 10-1= 9. The basic numerals are: I = 1 V = 5 X = 10 L = 50 C = 100 D = 500 M = 1000 If it has a line over it, it means multiply by 1000, like L, wouldbe 50,000 Some examples of correct Roman Numerals: III = 1 + 1 + 1 = 3 IX = 10 - 1 = 9 XIV = 10 + 5 - 1 = 14 XXXII = 10 + 10 + 10 + 1 + 1 = 32 LXIX = 50 + 10 + 10 - 1 = 69 MMVIII = 1000 + 1000 + 5 + 1 + 1 + 1 = 2008 MMIX = 1000 + 1000 + 10 - 1 = 2009 Here are some of the roman numerals: 1-I 5-V 10-X 20-XX 30-XXX 40-XL 50-L 60-LX 70-LXX 80-LXXX 90-XC 100-C 200-CC 300-CCC 400-CD 500-D 600-DC 700-DCC 800-DCCC 900-CM 1,000-M The first few Roman numerals are: I, II, III, IV, V, VI, VII, VIII,IX, X, XI, XII, XIII, XIV, XV, XVI, XVII, XVIII and so on.

# Why Roman Numerals?

The Arabic (0-9) number system did not reach Europe until about 900 AD. Roman numerals date back to 1000 years BC and were the marks made on tally sticks and in stone. Their s…tyle was influenced by the Etruscan number system. They were originally quite different symbols from those in use today. In the middle ages they were aligned to the closest modern roman alphabet equivalent shape. Roman numerals were not just confined to whole numbers, fractions were indicated by a series of dots, each number and pattern of dots meaning a different part of the whole.
