Roman Numerals

Roman numerals are written as combinations of the seven letters in the table below. The letters can be written as capital (XVI) or lower-case letters (xvi).

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

If smaller numbers follow larger numbers, the numbers are added. If a smaller number precedes a larger number, the smaller number is subtracted from the larger. For example:

  • VIII = 5+3 = 8
  • IX = 10-1 = 9
  • XL = 50-10 = 40
  • XC = 100-10 = 90
  • MCMLXXXIV = 1000+(1000-100)+50+30+(5-1) = 1984
