Roman numerals is the numeral system of ancient

Rome (B.C period, meaning before Chris in the

10th century ). It uses letters from the Latin

alphabet to signify values.

Example: The numbers 1 through 10 written in Roman numerals

are:

I, II, III, IV, V, VI, VII, VIII, IX, and X

Zero? Roman numerals does not include a zero.

The Roman numerals we use today are based on seven symbols

Numbers are formed by combining symbols

together and adding the values.

Example: the number 6 = V L, the number 10 = X and

the number 11 = XL

When smaller values precede larger values, the smaller values are

subtracted from the larger values, and the result is added to the

total. For example: LV = (5 − 1) = 4
