How to form roman numbers

We can form roman numbers by adding the symbols.

1. Add symbol after a larger (or equal) symbol

Example: VII = V + I + I = 5 + 1 + 1 = 7
Example: LXV = L + X + V = 50 + 10 + 5 = 65

2. Subtract symbol if the symbol appears before a larger symbol

Example: IV = V − I = 5 − 1 = 4
Example: IX = X − I = 10 − 1 = 9

Some Examples:
