You might be wondering then when and where to use the Roman Numerals. Don’t worry here I go. Mark the Numbered bullets I have used that suggest the currency of use and Microsoft words still features this form of bullet.
Upper Case Roman Numerals are used after names and titles:
Louis XVI, Kenedy II
Lower case Roman Numerals are generally used to number the pages of the introduction to a book: For example the sixth page of the introduction will typically bear the number vii rather that VI or 6.
Capital Roman Numerals are also used to:
I. To number the chapters or appendices of a book.
II. To number the stanzas of a book.
III. To number the acts of a play.
Some periodicals also use Roman numerals for their Volumes.
I. New literally Journal Vol. X
II. Times Vol. XVI No. 23
A combination of both Roman and Arabic numerals is also used for the sections of an outline.
1. I Introduction:
2. II.1 The novel: From – to --
3. II.2 The novel: From – to –
Remember 1, 2, 3 …so on are called Arabic numbers.
How the Roman numbers began. Two hands crossed became X 10 fingers became 10 and X represents 10.
The initial I means subtractions and the later I or I’s means addition.
I=1 II=2 III=3 IV=4 V=5 VI=6
VII=7 VIII=8 IX=9 X=10
XX=20 XXX=30 XL=40 L=50
LX=60 LXX=70 LXXX=80 XC=90 C=100
CC=200 CCC=300 CD=400 D=500
DC=600 DCC=700 DCCC=800 CM=900
Numbers between the above numerals are formed following the Addition and Subtraction Rules.
