How to Use Roman Numerals Chart
In order that we can use Roman Numerals Chart in the right way, we have to understand and remember the basic principle of it. There are seven basic symbols in Roman numeric system which is used and combined to convert or signify the value of cardinal number:
- the letter ‘I’ to symbolize 1,
- the letter ‘V’ for 5,
- the letter ‘X’ to signify 10,
- the letter ‘L’ dedicated to 50,
- the letter ‘C’ to replace 100,
- the letter ‘D’ for 500, and
- the letter ‘M’ for 1000.
The Roman numbers are formed by combining two or more symbols together; to represent the value. For example, if you want to convert the value of ‘2013’, you will need to see the numeral for 1000, 10, and 1. The Roman number for 2013 is then MMXIII. In Roman Numerals Chart, you only need to see the corresponding Roman and cardinal number. You cannot find any zero system; meaning that you cannot convert ‘0’ into Roman numeral system.
