In our previous segment, we were introduced to the Roman numeral system. We have learnt the rules of writing Roman numerals. We know how to write numbers 1 to 10 as Roman numerals. In this segment, we will learn how to represent higher Roman numerals.

We know that the Roman numeral system uses the letters of the English alphabet to represent numbers. We have seen how we can use I, V and X to write numbers from 1 to 10.
Let us now write the numerals 11, 12 and 13.
Using the rules we learnt in the previous segment, these numbers can be written as follows:
11 – XI (X = 10, I = 1)
12 – XII
13 – XIII
Now 14, cannot be written as XIIII, as no symbol can be repeated more than three times. 14 = 10 + 4.
And we know that 4 is written as IV. So 14 is written as XIV.
Let us see which other letters are used in the Roman numeral system.
Symbol |
Value |
I |
1 |
V |
5 |
X |
10 |
L |
50 |
C |
100 |
D |
500 |
M |
1000 |
Using these symbols, we can represent any number as a Roman numeral following the rules we previously learnt.
