# How were greater numbers formed for the Romans?

M=1000, D=500, C=100, L=50, X=10, V=5, I=1 If a horizontal bar or line was placed above a numeral it indicated that the numeral was to be multiplied by a thousand. For examp…le the numeral M with a line above it was equal to a 1,000,000. If a horizontal line was placed above a numeral and vertical a line placed each side of that numeral it meant multiplication by a hundred thousand. For example the numeral V with a line above it and each side of it was equal to 500,000.

# What is the rule for forming Roman Numerals?

Roman numerals are expressed by letters of the alphabet: I=1 V=5 X=10 L=50 C=100 D=500 M=1000 There are four basic principles for reading and writing Roman numerals: 1. A …letter repeats its value that many times (XXX = 30, CC = 200). A letter can only be repeated three times. 2. If one or more letters are placed after another letter of greater value, add that amount. VI = 6 (5 + 1 = 6) LXX = 70 (50 + 10 + 10 = 70) MCC = 1200 (1000 + 100 + 100 = 1200) 3. If a letter is placed before another letter of greater value, subtract that amount. IV = 4 (5 - 1 = 4) XC = 90 (100 - 10 = 90) CM = 900 (1000 - 100 = 900) Several rules apply for subtracting amounts from Roman numerals: a. Only subtract powers of ten (I, X, or C, but not V or L) For 95, do NOT write VC (100 - 5). DO write XCV (XC + V or 90 + 5) b. Only subtract one number from another. For 13, do NOT write IIXV (15 - 1 - 1). DO write XIII (X + I + I + I or 10 + 3) c. Do not subtract a number from one that is more than 10 times greater (that is, you can subtract 1 from 10 [IX] but not 1 from 20-there is no such number as IXX.) For 99, do NOT write IC (C - I or 100 - 1). DO write XCIX (XC + IX or 90 + 9) 4. A bar placed on top of a letter or string of letters increases the numeral's value by 1,000 times. XV = 15, = 15,000
