Question

In Roman numerals, letters represent numbers. For example, I = 1, V = 5, X = 10, L = 50, and C = 100. Letters in Roman numerals are written next to each other; this is how the value of the number is shown. To read the numbers below, add the values of all of the letters. What numbers do the following represent?

a. CLX b. LVI c. CIII

Solution

Step 1
1 of 2

Use the given values: I = 1, V = 5, X = 10, L = 50, and C =100.

a.

CLX=100+50+10=160\text{CLX}=100+50+10=\color{#c34632}160

b.

LVI=50+5+1=56\text{LVI}=50+5+1=\color{#c34632}56

c.

CIII=100+1+1+1=103(1)\text{CIII}=100+1+1+1=\color{#c34632}103\color{white}\tag{1}
