    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.
