# Roman Numerals

The ancient number system known as oman numerals is still prevalent worldwide. The fixed positive numbers are represented by alphabets in roman numerals. I, II, III, IV, V, VI, VII, VIII, IX, and X are roman numerals that stand for the numbers 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, and 10 respectively.

The roman numbers XI for 11, XII for 12, XII for 13,... to XX for 20 come after 10.

## Chart for Roman Numerals (1 to 1000)

Roman numerals from 1 to 1000, including 1, 2, 3,..., 10, 11, 20, 30, 50, 100, 500, and 1000, are shown in the table below. We can quickly write roman numbers from 1 to 1000 using the chart.

## Roman Letters

Although not all English alphabets are roman alphabets, the roman letters are. Out of the 26 English alphabets, there are 23 roman alphabets, and J, U, and W are not included. A, B, C, D, E, F, G, H, I, K, L, M, N, O, P, Q, R, S, T, V, X, Y, and Z are the letters in the Roman alphabet. Roman symbols are another name for these roman letters.

### Example

Calculate the roman numeral MXXII-LXX - LII.

Solution:

MXXII-LXX-LII are given.

We are aware that LXX = 70, LII = 52, and MXXII = 1022.

Now, when we use the Roman numeral letters in place of these numbers, we obtain;

MXXII- LXX-LII = 1022-70-52.

MXXII-LXX-LII = 900.

Therefore, 900 in Roman numeral form is CM.

For instance, MMXIX is how the year 2019 is written.

## Why Is It Important to Understand Roman Numerals?

Roman numerals are still used today in a number of contexts, so learning how to read them is essential.

Here are three common instances where Roman numerals are used:

Roman numerals are frequently used instead of Arabic numbers on analogue clocks, such as Big Ben in London, to give them a more conventional or vintage appearance. (Take note that a lot of Roman numeral clocks display 4 as IIII rather than IV.)

Roman numerals are commonly used to indicate a film's release year at the end of the credits and on the backs of DVD and Blu-ray cases.

Super Bowl: Every year, Roman numerals are used in the advertisements for the wildly popular Super Bowl (the only game to date to not utilise Roman numerals was Super Bowl 50, perhaps because L isn't an appealing-looking numeral on its own).
Roman numerals are definitely worth spending some time learning, especially if you want to work in football or film production, even though Arabic numbers are much more prevalent (pardon the pun) in terms of the range of contexts in which they're employed.
