How to Convert to Roman Numerals
The Roman numerals are represented
by the following letters:
- I = 1
- V = 5
- X = 10
- L = 50
- C = 100
- D = 500
- M = 1000
- If a numeral is followed by another numeral of lower denomination, the two are added together;
- if it is preceded by one of lower denomination, the smaller numeral is subtracted from the greater.
Thus XI = 11 (X + I), but IX = 9 (X – I).
Other examples are XXC = 80, CXL = 140, XV = 15, XLVIII = 48.
Thousands from 1000 to 9000 are represented as: M, MM, MMM,MMMM, MMMMM, MMMMMM, MMMMMMM, MMMMMMMM, MMMMMMMMM.
