alphabet to signify values.

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
