Question:
Goodday, How would I write out my Birth date In roman numerals.
My birth date 1976.......What would that equal in the roman numerals.
and or what would 10 month 06 day, 1976 look in the roman numeral.
I just can't figure it out....Could you please help. Pete
Replies:
I would suggest:
X VI MCMLXXVI for
tenth sixth 1976th
month day year
with the symbols I meaning one, V meaning 5, X meaning ten, L meaning 50,
C meaning 100,
and M meaning 1000.
where one symbol appears before another symbol of larger value, that value
is diminished by the value of the smaller symbol. For example MCMLCCVI is
1000, then "100 less than one thousand" (900 hundred), then "50 plus 10 plus
10 plus 5 plus 1", or 76.
Thanks for using NEWTON!
Now... how would you represent the year Abraham Lincoln died (1865) ?
