About Roman Numerals

Roman Numerals surround us in today's modern world! Look at a clock-tower, or even many analog watches, and you'll find the hours in Roman Numerals: I, II, III, IV, V, VI, VII, VIII, IX, X, XI, X12.

With just 7 characters, the ancient world used Roman Numerals for counting and dating: I (1), V (5), X (10), L (50), C (100), D (500), M (1000). That's compared to the base 10 number system we use today, comprised of digits 0 to 9.

Unlike our system of counting, which is positional, Roman Numerals are non-positional. That is, for us where the 9 appears and how many zeros after it account for the values of the following: 9, 90, and 900. The Romans had rules on how to combine their characters to arrive at a value: IX (9), XC (90), and CM (900).
