# Why didn't the Romans use zero in Roman Numerals?

There was no need for a zero in their system. We have 9 numbers plus the zero symbol. We add a zero on to the end of a number to convert it to tens and two zeros to convert it… to hundreds and so on. The Romans simply had different symbols for tens and hundreds. For example we would write 1, 10, 20, 40, 50, 100 and 200 but the same numbers as Roman numerals would be I, X, XX, XL, L, C and CC, done quite simply with no need for a zero. In the middle ages monks, who still used Roman numerals and wrote in Latin, began to used the symbol N to represent zero (from the Latin Nullae meaning nothing).

# Is there a roman numeral for zero?

In general, the number zero did not have its own Roman numeral, but a primitive form ( nulla ) was known by medieval computists (responsible for calculating the date of E…aster ). They included zero (via the Latin word nulla meaning "none") as one of nineteen epacts , or the age of the moon on March 22 . The first three epacts were nullae , xi, and xxii (written in minuscule or lower case). The first known computist to use zero was Dionysius Exiguus in 525. Only one instance of a Roman numeral for zero is known. About 725, Bede or one of his colleagues used the letter N , the initial of nullae , in a table of epacts, all written in Roman numerals..
