    I = 1

    V = 5

    X = 10

    L = 50

    C = 100

    D = 500

    M = 1000

    (with a simple line over the letter)

    v = 5000

    x = 10 000

    It is possible to write 1-100...

    I = 1

    II = 2

    III = 3

    ... but that would take too long. So follow these

    IV = 4

    IX = 9

    XL = 40

    XC = 90

    CD = 400

    CM = 900

    499 = CDXCIX = (500 - 100) + (90 - 10) + (10 - 1)

    Number behind the top number subtracts. Number in front of the top number adds, sometimes...

    XV = 15

    XX = 20

    XL = 40

    IXL= 49

    LXXX = 80

    XC = 90

    XIXC = 99

    C = 100

    Hope this helps. You cannot write four roman numbers in a row. It's also very inconvenient to subtract by irrelevant numbers like LXXC = 30, when you can XXX = 30.

    If you want to... 1337 = MCCCXXXVII. For a better look M-CCC-XXX-VII.

    Source(s): Counted to over 14000 with roman numbers... so I know this :)
