## Roman numerals

Roman numerals mainly consist of seven symbols each with a distinct value as follows: I is 1, V is 5, X is 10, L is 50, C is 100, D is 500, and M is 1000. If a symbol preceeds a symbol with higher value it is substracted. Otherwise it is added. The following examples illustrate the principle:

- IV is -1+5=4
- VI is 5+1=6
- MMVII is 1000+1000+5+1+1=2007
- MCMLXXXVI is 1000-100+1000+50+10+10+10+5+1=1986
