Roman numerals originated in ancient Rome. What are Roman numerals? It is a system of using letters in place of using numbers. For example: the number “1” becomes capital letter “I” in Roman numerals. The number “2” becomes two capital letters “II”. The two II’s are equal to 1 + 1 = 2.
The number “3” would be three capital letters “III” for 1 + 1 + 1 = 3. Now it gets tricky because the number “4” is not “IIII” rather it becomes “IV”. “V” is equal to the number “5”. In Roman numerals the number “4” is shown as “IV” which is the same as 5 – 1 = 4.
Some helpful hints to remember are:
5 = V
10 = X
50 = L
100 = C
500 = D
1000 = M
