## How to Write Numbers in Roman Numerals?

Consider the sequence of roman numerals given below:

I, II, III, IV, V, VI, VII, VIII, IX, X, XI, XII, XIII, XIV, XV, XVI, XVII, XVIII, XIX, XX, XXI, XXII,…

From this, we can write the following basic rules for the conversion of roman numerals into numerical values.

• When a bigger letter precedes a smaller letter, we should subtract the corresponding numerical values. For example, the value of XL can be derived as L – X = 50 – 10 = 40, where L is the bigger number.
• Also, the notation XL can be read as “ten less than fifty, i.e. 40”.
• When a bigger letter succeeds a smaller letter, we should add the corresponding numerical values. Consider LX, where X is the bigger number. So, LX = L + X = 50 + 10 = 60. Also, the notation LX can be read as “ten more than fifty, i.e. 60”.
