### What is 1776 plus 1499 and 1776 minus 1499 but working out both calculations entirely in Roman numerals with explanations?

Nowadays we would convert 1499 into Roman numerals as MCDXCIX
which does not lend itself quite easily for the purpose of
arithmetical operations but there is historical evidence to suggest
that the ancient Romans would have worked out the equivalent of
1499 in an abridged format of IMD thus facilitating the speed and
ease of both calculations as follows-
MDCCLXXVI+IMD = MMMCCLXXV => 1776+(1500-1) = 3275
MDCCLXXVI-IMD = CCLXXVII => 1776-(1500-1) = 277
Note that if we were to arrange MCDXCIX as M+CD+XC+IX then they
too would add up to IMD.

###### Asked in Roman Numerals, Numbers

### What is the sum and difference of 1776 and 1499 but working out both calculations from start to finish entirely in Roman numerals?

Notwithstanding today's rules now governing the Roman numeral
system, that were introduced in the Middle Ages long after the
decline of the Roman Empire, inasmuch that it can be extrapolated
from reliable historical sources that the ancient Romans would have
worked out the given numbers as follows:-
Sum of: MDCCLXXVI+IMD = MMMCCLXXV => 1776+(-1+1500) =
3275
Difference of: MDCCLXXVI-IMD = CCLXXVII => 1776-(-1+1500) =
277
Note that under today's rules the equivalent of 1499 as a Roman
numeral is now considered to be MCDXCIX but the ancient Romans
would have simply abridged it to IMD because M-C+D-X+C-I+X =
IMD

### What is 1776 plus 1499 and 1776 minus 1499 but showing all work and answers in Roman numerals?

Nowadays we would consider that the correct conversion of 1499
into Roman numerals to be MCDXCIX but then there is historical
evidence to show that the ancient Romans would have worked out the
equivalent of 1499 on an abacus calculating device as
MCCCCLXXXXVIIII and then logically abridged it to IMD in written
format thus facilitating the speed and ease of the required
calculations as follows:-
MDCCLXXVI+IMD = MMMCCLXXV => 1776+(1500-1) = 3275
MDCCLXXVI-IMD = CCLXXVII => 1776-(1500-1) = 277
Note that in arithmetic -(1500-1) becomes 1-1500
