LESSON 3

The Roman Notation employs seven letters of the Roman alphabet to represent numbers.

I V. X L С D M, letters employed. 1 5 10 50 100 500 1000, values. Other numbers are represented by repeating or combining these letters according to certain principles.

PRINCIPLES

1. Every time a letter is repeated, the number represented by it is repeated.

Thus, II, 2; XX, 20; CCC, 300.

2. By writing a letter before one of greater value, the difference of their values is represented.

Thus, IV, 4; IX, 9; XL, 40.

3. By writing a letter after one of greater value, the sum of their values is represented.

Thus, VI, 6; XI, 11; XV, 15.

4. When a letter is written between two letters each of greater value, it is combined with the one following it, according to Principle 2.

Thus, XIV, 14; CIX, 109; DXL, 540.

5. The value of an expression is increased a thousandfold by placing a dash over it.

Thus, V, 5000; X, 10,000; XV, 15,000.
