IMO Class 4 Chapter 2: Roman Numerals Detailed Notes

Roman Numerals

A unique type of numerical notation that was previously used by the Romans is known as Roman Numerals. Letters are used to represent specific base numbers and arbitrary numbers in the number system using the Roman numeral, which is an additive and subtractive system. Roman numeral XLVII, which in numerical form equals 47, is an illustration. Roman numerals are represented by a different set of symbols, some of which are letters from the English alphabet. For instance, the roman numeral for 5 is V.

How do Roman numerals work?

The ancient number system known as Roman 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 numerals XI for 11, XII for 12, XII for 13,… until XX for 20 comes after 10.
