Roman Numerals

The Roman number system is very different from ours. To start with they use letters rather than numbers and there is no zero. The system still used today is based on 7 letters:
I = 1
V = 5
X = 10
L = 50
C = 100
X = 1000
All numbers can be written using these 7 letters, by combining them together and adding the values.
For example: XVI is 10 + 5 + 1 = 16

2. put a letter before a larger one means you take it away.
