What are roman numerals?

Roman numerals are the numeric system of Ancient Rome – instead of the numbers that we use today (based on the arabic numbering system), they were represented by a series of letters.
The letters represented by Roman numerals are:
I = 1
V = 5
X = 10
L = 50
C = 100
D = 500
M = 1000
Numerals are formed by adding the values of the letters together – so XVI is 16 (x = 10, V = 5, I = 1) and MMCV is 2105 (M = 1000, 2nd M = 1000, C = 100, V = 5).
Numerals are placed in order from largest to smallest.
Each numeral can be repeated 3 times – XXX being 30 and LLL being 150.
Instead of a numeral being repeated a 4th time, it is represented as the next numeral minus on – for example XL being 40 (50 – 10) and LD being 450 (500 – 50).
