## 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

10-1+10 = X + I + X = XIX
