What is mcmlx in Roman Numerals?
MCMLX in Roman Numerals is 1960.
Roman Numerals are what Romans used to use for numbers. Differentsymbols have different numeral values. For example, I = 1, V = 5,and X = 10. When these symbols are combined in different ways theother numbers are formed. There are several rules for the placementof the symbols. . You may place up to… 3 of the same symbol adjacent to each otherto indicate addition. For example: I = 1; II = 1+1 = 2; III = 1+1+1= 3. Note that IIII is not proper because you may have no more than3 of the same symbol in a row. . You may place a smaller symbol after a larger one to indicateaddition. For example: V = 5; VI = 5+1 = 6; VII = 5+1+1 = 7; VIII =5+1+1+1 = 8. Again VIIII would not be proper because there are 4 Isimmediately adjacent to each other. . You may place a smaller symbol immediately before a largersymbol to indicate subtraction. For example IV = 5-1 = 4; IX = 10-1= 9. The basic numerals are: I = 1 V = 5 X = 10 L = 50 C = 100 D = 500 M = 1000 If it has a line over it, it means multiply by 1000, like L, wouldbe 50,000 Some examples of correct Roman Numerals: III = 1 + 1 + 1 = 3 IX = 10 - 1 = 9 XIV = 10 + 5 - 1 = 14 XXXII = 10 + 10 + 10 + 1 + 1 = 32 LXIX = 50 + 10 + 10 - 1 = 69 MMVIII = 1000 + 1000 + 5 + 1 + 1 + 1 = 2008 MMIX = 1000 + 1000 + 10 - 1 = 2009 Here are some of the roman numerals: 1-I 5-V 10-X 20-XX 30-XXX 40-XL 50-L 60-LX 70-LXX 80-LXXX 90-XC 100-C 200-CC 300-CCC 400-CD 500-D 600-DC 700-DCC 800-DCCC 900-CM 1,000-M The first few Roman numerals are: I, II, III, IV, V, VI, VII, VIII,IX, X, XI, XII, XIII, XIV, XV, XVI, XVII, XVIII and so on.

Romans used Roman numerals as their form of numbers. Romans needed Roman Numerals because they needed numbers to count, tell time, and do other things in life that involved numbers. Roman numerals were used because they could all be scribed using a flat chisel i.e X I V M.
most likely. they are called ROMAN numerals -- While I don't actually know the answer, I'd like to point out that the answerer before me is a moron, and read the question wrong. Just like in the name, Roman Numerals were started in Rome. Today, it is still used. Well now in every stats and c…ountries we use more simpler numbers. Like 1,2,3,4, and so on. We should think that we are really fortunate. Tank you for your question... 2010 November 21 Sunday (MORE)
Roman numerals were the symbols developed by the Ancient Romans for counting and other numbering activities. The Romans used them because they developed them and that was what they knew. What do you use numbers for? They used them for the exact same things, instead of the kind of numbers we use, wh…ich are known as Arabic numerals. (MORE)
the Romans did not knew the 1 2 3. so they used it for everything that involved numbers.
I hope I understand your question correctly. In Roman numerals: Our letter "X" is the symbol used for the Roman number 10. Our letter "I" is the symbol used for the Roman number 1. Our letter "V" is the symbol used for the Roman number 5. To write a number in Roman numerals, you use a combination of… these letters. For example: For Roman numeral 9, it would be "IX", for Roman numeral 11, it would be "XI". For Roman numeral 4, it would be "IV", and for Roman numeral 6, it would be "VI". For Roman numeral 3, it would be "III". In other words, the letter(s) before the last letter are subtracted from the last letter (unless the first value is greater than the next value), and the letters after the first letters are added to the first letter (unless the first value is NOT greater than the next value).

The Romans used Roman numerals because that was their way ofcalculating. Roman numerals are really very simple andstraightforward. For example, the I = 1, no problem there. ThreeI's - 3. C = 100, the Latin abbreviation for centum , M - 1000, theLatin abbreviation for mille. For us it takes a bit of …figuringout, but for the Romans it was simple; if a person could count, hecould read numbers. (MORE)
The Hindu/Arabic number system is the one which is used in most of the countries of the world. The numbers used are; 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9 and 0. The Romans used a complete different system and the numerals used were; I, V, X, L, C, D and M.
No, the Arabic numeral system is the one used in most countries of the world and it based on the numbers; 1, 2, 3, 4 ,5, 6, 7, 8, 9 and 0. The numbers have place values based on multiples of 10. The Roman numeral system does not have place value and the numerals used are; I, V, X, L, C, D and M.
The Arabic (0-9) number system did not reach Europe until about 900 AD. Roman numerals date back to 1000 years BC and were the marks made on tally sticks and in stone. Their style was influenced by the Etruscan number system. They were originally quite different symbols from those in use today. In t…he middle ages they were aligned to the closest modern roman alphabet equivalent shape. Roman numerals were not just confined to whole numbers, fractions were indicated by a series of dots, each number and pattern of dots meaning a different part of the whole. (MORE)
Roman numerals.... 1 = I 2 = II 3 = III 4 = IV (or IIII on old clocks, watches and sundials) 5 = V 6 = VI 7 = VII 8 = VIII 9 = IX 10 = X 20 = XX 30 = XXX 40 = XL 50 = L 60 = LX 70 = LXX 80 = LXXX 90 = XC 100 = C 500 = D 1000 = M 2000 = MM 3000 = MMM After 3000 thousand are written by either placing… a horizontal bar over a numeral, to indicate that the numeral should be multiplied by 1000, or by placing the numeral inside brackets, which also indicates that it should be multiplied by 1000. Examples... 4000 = [IV] 10000 = [X] 523000 = [DXXIII] 1000000 = [M] The numbers 11 - 19 and 21 - 29 etc follow the same pattern as the numbers 1 to 9 but preceeded by X or XX etc. The same applies to numbers preceeded by 100s or 1000s. Some examples... 14 = XIV 44 = XLIV 88 = LXXXVIII 151 = CLI 423 = CDXXIII 666 = DCLXVI 1066 = MLXVI 2009 = MMIX (MORE)
the romans used roman numerals like we use numbers but not as many people could write.
The Roman numerals mdcccclxxxxviiii or MDCCCCLXXXXVIIII (they both have the same numerical value but the upper case version is more preferable) converted into Arabic numerals are 1999. While 1999 could theoretically be written as MDCCCCLXXXXVIIII the more widely accepted form of the number would …be MCMXCIX . Shorter is better! (MORE)
Roman numerals are a numeral system of ancient Rome based on letters of the alphabet, which are combined to signify the sum of their values.
The creation of roman numerals was a long one. As the Roman empire developed they needed a method to count that was more than 10 fingers so they developed a system using the hand with numeric symbols. An example of this would be I stood for a single finger while V was for the whole hand, and X for b…oth hands. Trade required a means of math and so did the construction of roads and buildings. So, there is no exact date that can be given for this development. (MORE)
Basically, yes. They were the main system of numbers used by the Romans. There were minority numeral systems in Rome, of which is still unknown.
During the Tudor period most writing was still done in Latin and Roman numerals were still widely used. King Edward VI (The son of Henry VIII) was the first monarch to have the date written in modern numbers of some of his later coins. Edward also help to popularised the printing of books in English….

The Roman system of numbering came into common use in the 4thcentury BC. Before that, they used the Greek system of numbers.
Virtually all numbers can be made from various combinations of the 7 Roman numerals. I (1) V (5) X (10) L (50) C (100) D (500) and M (1000). -- further -- Adding a bar above any of the standard numerals (other than i) had the effect of multiplying that numeral's value by 1,000, so that a v w…ith a bar above it is 5,000 and an m with a bar is (MORE)
Yes and it is: MDCLXVI which represents 1666 (MDCLXVI = 1000+500+100+50+10+5+1 = 1666). Another answer: The example of 1666 above not only uses all of the roman numerals just once each, but it also places the numerals in descending order from M to I. Other numbers which use all 7 roman num…erals one time only, but in mixed usage, include: MCDXLIV (1444), MCDXLVI (1446), MCDLXIV (1464), MCDLXVI (1466), MDCXLIV (1644), MDCXLVI (1646), MDCLXIV (1664).

Strictly speaking we should refer to Roman numerals as Etruscan numerals because it was the Etruscans who conceived the idea of numerals in the first place. The Etruscans once ruled the Romans and the Romans copied their counting system off them with modifications.
The Roman numeral system was used during ancient Roman times, butuse of the system continued long after the Roman empire declined.In the 14th century, Roman numerals were slowly replaced byHindu-Arabic numbers.
Well, of course they did-clue's kind of in the title 'ROMAN NUMERALS' Additional answer The questioner asked How not Whether they invested them
One is I in Roman numerals. This is two II , but four is IV , V is five, and six is VI.
They didn't it was the Etruscans who came up with the idea of of writing out symbols to represent numerical quantities and the Romans copied it. The Etruscans once ruled the Romans.

Glance at any watch or clock face that have Roman numerals embellished on them and invariably you'll notice that the fourth hour is given as IIII. Furthermore, in the ruins of the Coliseum in Rome, the number 29 is inscribed in stone as XXVIIII. 1999 is MIM nowadays, most of the 1900s were MCM.... (MORE)
No, that's one invention you can't pin on the Romans. The Romans did not have clocks as we know them. They used the sundial or water clocks or simply looked up at the sky. (They, like all ancient peoples, were pretty accurate at judging time from the position of the sun) The Roman numerals on clocks… is a decorative touch to make them more distinguished or "classy".

First of all, The ancient Roman language is Latin and different toItalian. Second, Numeris Romanis.
Roman numerals weren't changed to Hindu-Arabic numerals. The two systems developed separately around the same time period. Roman numerals were in common use long after the Roman empire collapsed in the west, right up until the 14th century, by which time the Indian base-9 positional system had evolv…ed into a base-10 positional system and was brought to Europe by the Arabs (the system itself is not Arabic, but Indian). Mathematicians immediately took to the much simpler Hindu-Arabic system, thus Roman numerals rapidly fell from favour. The western symbols 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8 and 9 were added to the Latin alphabet in the 16th century. However, the fact Roman numerals are still used today, albeit as a decorative form of ordinal notation, is testament to its longevity. (MORE)
Roman numerals were common up until the 14th century. However, the Hindu-Arabic system, which replaced it, was first introduced in the 10th century, and was derived from the Indian numeral system first used in the 5th century. The Roman system started in around 400 BC but the system we use today did…n't arrive until the 1st century AD (albeit without subtractive notation such as IV). There have been other numeral systems, including positional notation systems, that pre-date the Romans, as far back as 1,500 BC. (MORE)
I suspect this question was taken from copywritten material, which is not allowed. Otherwise, you left out some crucial information.
590 d = 500 xc = (-10) + 100 = 100 - 10 = 90 x = 10 c = 100
Strange as it may seem but Roman numerals had nothing to do with the Romans because this form of numeracy was first concieved by the Etruscans who once ruled the Romans.
When they first needed to record tallies and numbers. There is no exact date when this was. However, like many other numbering systems of the period, the system evolved from existing systems, most notably the Etruscan numerals which were themselves evolved from the Greek Attic numerals.
Modern Romans use Roman numerals about as infrequently as the rest of the western world. Arabic numerals was much easier to use for all purposes, so the old Roman numerals are used only in formal notices like foundation stones, and often, not even then. In ancient times, before Arabic numerals were… introduced to Europe, the ancient Romans used Roman numerals for all activities that required counting or arithmetic. That included commercial transactions, accounting (such as it was), calendars, etc. (MORE)
They didn't because it was the Etruscans who concieved this form of numeracy and they once ruled the Romans.
No where because this numeral system was created by the Etruscans who once ruled the Romans
They didn't because this numeracy system was conceived by the Etruscans who once ruled the Romans. First of all, let me note that the theory that Rome was ruled by the Etruscans has now been challenged. Its evidence base was flimsy and its key tenets were based on unproven assumptions. More recent …archaeological evidence suggests a different picture. The Roman numerals were devised by the Romans (or probably the Latins more in general), not the Etruscans. The Roman numerals were not derived from Etruscan numerals. Two systems were partially related, probably due to the fact that both of them were inspired by the Attic numerals of the Greeks. However, they two used different symbols. Etruscan numerals are still not fully understood just as the Etruscan language has not been fully deciphered due to the small number of recovered inscriptions. The Roman system, like that of many ancient peoples, originated from a tally system. The counting of entities was recorded by etching tally marks on wood. That is why 1 is I, 2 in II and 3 is III. The tallies were added to each other. Every five notches there was a different symbol, like á¶º for 5. This symbol was later inverted and became V. Later in time, all these special symbols were converted into letters of the Latin alphabet: X (10), L (50), C (100), D (50), M (1,000). Thus, 15 was XV, 20 was XX, 25 was XXV, 30 was XXX, 60 Was LX, 110 was CX, 150 was CL, 170 was CLXX, etc. The system was originally complicated. For example 8 was IIIIVIII. It was then simplified with an abbreviation; 8 became VIII. 23 was originally IIIIVIIIIXIIIIVIIIIXIII. Later it was abbreviated as XXIII. (MORE)
In todays modern usage of Roman numerals it is the equivalent of 2594 in Hindu-Arabic numerals
Ancient Romans developed the Roman numeral system as a tracking and counting system. The various symbols (I, V, X, L, C, D, M, etc) were derived from both the base shorthand notation (the "I" was probably a single stroke originally, designating one) and from the Latin words for the number (such as "…C" from "centus", meaning "one hundred"). However, the Roman system has limitations - there are only so many numbers that can be written in Roman numerals and there is no concept of "zero". Shifting from Roman numerals to Arabic (modified Hindu) numerals as is used today throughout the developed world led to significant advancements in mathematics. (MORE)
L = 50, X = 10, I = 1 and V = 5 so LXXIV = 50 + 10 + 10 + 5 - 1 = 74 .
The Romans used "Roman Numerals" the same way that we use our Arabic numerals. They were used for all things mathematical, accounting, adding, subtracting, etc. The difference was just in the writing of the numbers, such as V for a 5 or X for a 10.
Numerals are used for mathematical calculations. Mathematical calculations are used in science. This is the way Roman numerals related to Roman science.
Romans numerals are the number of the Romans. The were I (1) V (5) X (10) L (50) C (100) D (500) and M (1,00). Numbers were created by putting these letters together in a variety of orders.
Today the equivalent of 19 in Roman numerals are XIX But in ancient Rome they once were XVIIII or IXX In fact the Latin word for XVIIII is 'novemdecim' and the Latin word for IXX is 'undeviginti There is no equivalent Latin word for XIX
For the same reason why we still use the Latin language andRoman numerals are the numerical aspect of it. . +++ . Roman numerals rarely used nowadays. They occur in publishingand in clock-making, but not otherwise because the Arabic system isfar simpler and lends itself readily to mathematics. The… Latinlanguage is far more common, many of its words surviving as theroots for many English, Italian and French words. (MORE)
Roman numerals are the numerical element of the Latin language which is still spoken today and was the language spoken by the ancient Romans who once conquered most of the known world at the time.
M is 1000. CM is 900 (The C subtracts from the M). L is 50 and X is10. MCMLX is 1960.
D is 500, C is 100, X is 19 and I is 1. 632 is DCXXXII.
Hindu-Arabic numerals are: 0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 and 9 . Roman numerals are: I V X L C D and M
