Worksheet Overview

QUESTION 1 of 10

The Romans used the following symbols to represent their counting numbers:

I = 1
V = 5
X = 10
L = 50
C = 100
D = 500
M = 1000

 

Certain rules apply.

A letter placed after another letter means that you add the second letter to the first letter. Examples include: 

VI = 5 + 1 = 6
VII = 5 + 1 + 1 = 7
VIII = 5 + 1 + 1 + 1 = 8
XI = 10 + 1 = 11
LX = 50 + 10 = 60
MC = 1000 + 100 = 1100

 

A letter placed before another letter means that you subtract the first letter from the second. Examples include: 

IV = 5 - 1 = 4
IX = 10 - 1 = 9
XL = 50 - 10 = 40
CM = 1000 - 100 = 900

 

 

Example

Write the number 3874 in Roman numerals.

 

Answer

MMM = 3000

CCM = 1000 - 200 = 800

L = 50

XX = 20

IV = 5 - 1 = 4

So 3874 = MMMCCMLXXIV
