ROMAN SYSTEM.

42. In this system seven letters are used to express numbers, viz:

Letters. I, V, X, L, C, D M.
Values, 1, 5, 10, 50, 100, 500, 1000.

By combining these letters according to certain principles any number can be expressed.

PRINCIPLES. -1. When a letter is repeated its value is repeated.

Thus, I represents 1; II, two; III, three; X, ten; XX, twenty; XXX, thirty ; C, one hundred; CCC, three hundred.

2. When a letter is placed before another of greater value its value is to be taken from that of the greater.

Thus, I represents one and V five, but IV represents four; IX, nine; XIX, nineteen; XL, forty; XC, ninety.

3. When a letter is placed after another of greater value their values are to be united.

Thus, XV represents fifteen; LX, sixty; LXXX, eighty; DC, six hundred; MD, fifteen hundred.

4. A bar placed over a number increases its value a thousandfold.

Thus, V represents five; V, five thousand; LX, sixty; LX, sixty thousand; M, one thousand; M, one million.
