Yes. Eight can be written as VIII or IIX when writing in Roman numerals, though the former is more commonly used.

According to Wikipedia IIX was used more commonly during the middle ages, though still rarer than VIII.

IIX means 8.For the Time, 8.

8 8 1981 in Roman numerals is VIII VIII MDCCCCLXXXI or IIX IIX XXMMI. Note that 1981 is not MCMLXXXI in Roman numerals.

That is not a correctly formed Roman Numeral. It could be meant to be an 8.

LLX and IIX both aren't roman numerals. L is 50. LL would be 100 but C is 100. IIX would be 8 but VIII is 8.

Tradionally 8 is represented as VIII in Roman numerals but in parts of Spain 8 is given as IIX so therefore both formats are acceptable.

During the Roman era the equivalent of 2-1990-8 was probably II-XMM-IIX. But in today's revised notation of Roman numerals 2-1990-8 is written out as II-MCMXC-VIII. The former notation of Roman numerals seems more plausible than the latter.

There are many methods to representing Roman Numerals. The one you have written is an alternate form of expressing the value for 8. Although the commonly accepted modern method would be shown as VIII, IIX is a valid representation of Roman Numerals and historically was often used as well - and is therefore accurate. In simpler terms, it's the symbol for the number 8.

In ancient Rome the equivalent of 8 was IIX thus using less numerals or VIII in the same way that 9 was IX or VIIII. But in the Middle Ages the rules governing the Roman numeral system were changed to how we still use them today as for example we would convert 1999 into Roman numerals as MCMXCIX but the Romans probably wrote it out simply as IMM (2000-1)

If you mean 822 then the equivalent in Roman numerals is DCCCXXII

In today's notation of Roman numerals it is officially: VIII-XIX-MCMXCIX But for the sake of authenticity the Romans themselves in the past probably wrote out the equivalent of 8-19-1999 in a simplified format as: IIX-IXX-IMM Because of changes to the rules governing the Roman numeral system the way that we write out Roman numerals today differs in the way that the Romans actually did themselves.

In today's terms 98 expressed in Roman numerals is XCVIII But the rules governing the Roman numeral system were introduced during the Middle Ages centuries after the decline of the Roman Empire. Therefore it follows that the Romans themselves would have probably wrote out 98 as LXXXXVIII which can be simplified to IIC in the same way as the Roman numerals IIII and VIIII (4 and 9) are simplified to IV and IX respectively. In parts of Spain the numerals for VIII (8) are written out as IIX.

998- CMXCVIII 998 is CMXCVIII in roman numerals because CM represents 900 in roman numerals, XC represents 90 in roman numerals and VIII represents 8 in roman numerals; technically this is the correct answer.

The Roman numeral for 8 is VIII V being 5, and III being 3. Each I standing in the place of a 1. There is an often made mistake that 8 is IIX. This is incorrect.

Nonsense actually. The characters are not in a proper order, which means it could be interpreted in different ways. It could mean: VI IX = 6 + 9 = 15 VII X = 17 V IIX = 5 + 8 = 13
