Roman Numerals

Roman Numerals is an old decimal numeric system which represents the numbers as combinations of the following Latin letters: I, V, X, L, C, D, M (Roman Numerals Symbols). By using combinations of these symbols it is possible to record Roman Numeral Numbers. This system based on 7 Roman Numeral Symbols was invented and used by the Romans starting from the 7th - the 6th century BC and almost till the late Middle Ages. In our times, Roman Numerals are sometimes used for scientific (especially in chemistry, pharmacy, photography, seismology, etc) and some daily purposes (for example, in the names of the monarchs, on the clock face, for page numbering, etc.)

Here are some examples:

Apple Uses a Roman Numeral for iPhone X

Apple iPhone X is an Apple's tenth anniversary smartphone that was released on October 2017. It is also known as Apple iPhone 10 or Apple iPhone Ten.
X indicates the ten in Roman Numerals and this amazing phone has advanced features such as incredible screen and design with stainless steel frame and dust/water resistance ability. Also it comes with a surprise: it has no home button.
There is no doubt iPhone X is the best phone ever (so far) developed and marketed by Apple Inc.

Roman Numerals in Major Arcana Cards

Roman numerals are also used in the Major Arcana cards in a tarot deck. There are 22 Major Arcana cards. And all except the first one have Roman Numerals. Each card also has a name. And all of them symbolize the cosmic forces.

Watch Time Numbers in Roman Numerals

In clock faces and watches, numbers are represented by these Roman Numerals:

I: 1, II: 2, III: 3, IIII: 4, V: 5, VI: 6, VII: 7, VIII: 8, IX: 9, X: 10, XI: 11, XII: 12

As you notice, the numeral 4 is written as Roman Numeral IIII, not IV. The actual Roman numeral is IV of course, but the IIII can also be used. You can see this usage in a lot of modern and old clocks and watches. But it is not a universal form. For example, Big Ben in London uses a regular IV for four o'clock.

Roman Numerals Various Examples

Super Bowl is the championship game of the National Football League (NFL) in USA. It is an annual game which is hosted by a different city. Super Bowl uses Roman numerals to identify each game. For example, Super Bowl I was played at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum on January 15, 1967. And at this first game, The NFL’s champion Green Bay Packers defeated the AFL’s champion Kansas City Chiefs, 35–10. The recent Super Bowl LII was played in U.S. Bank Stadium, Minneapolis, Minneapolis on Sunday, February 4, 2018. The game was the fifty-second Super Bowl to determine the champion of the NFL for the 2017 season. As you can see, LII is 52 in Roman numerals.

I couldn't see the example which is key to using roman numerals a smaller number after a number adds eg. VI which is six IV subtracts which equals four. The same applies to all 7 numerals. I hope this helps someone. Improve addition and subtraction and be fine.

Mr.Quackers 2019-03-13 03:14:41

And for a higher place value than M, a line over a letter means times 1,000

Mr.Quackers 2019-03-13 03:12:58

For alt codes look at the decimal code numbers and type those after holding alt

Mr.Quackers 2019-03-13 03:11:15

Stop posting numbers with 4 of the same letter in a row their value is indistinguishable.

Jaan 2019-01-15 00:20:26

My guess grandfather clocks use IIII instead of IV is this. 4 being below 3 on the clock is thus displayed upside down. IIII is the same upside down as right side up and thus IIII easier to read upside down than IV.

Epik 2018-12-29 16:52:46
