Start from the left:

1000 = M

900 = CM

40 = XL

7 = VII

Now put them together MCMXLVII

### 6.4 Subtracting rules:

IV means 1 from 5, while VI means 5+1. Therefore a digit could be both positive and negative depending on whether it is to the right or left of the higher digit.

4 = IV (5 - 1)

9 = IX (10-1)

19 = XIX (10+10-1)

40 = XL (50-10)

90 = XC (100-10)

Various rules can be used for subtraction with Roman Numerals.

(a) Only subtract powers of ten (I, X, or C, but not V or L).
(b) Only subtract one numeral from another.
(c) Do not subtract a numeral from another that is more than 10 times greater.
