## Roman numerals chart

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.
