Question Number: #Com1588

DIRECTIONS for questions: Answer the questions on the basis of the information given below.

The seven basic symbols in a certain numberal system and their respective values are as follows:

I = 1, V = 5, X = 10, L = 50, C = 100, D = 500, and M = 1000

In general, the symbols in the numeral system are read from left to right, starting with the symbol representing the largest value; the same symbol cannot occur contiguously more than three times; the value of the numeral is the sum of the values of the symbols. For eg., XXVII = 10 + 10 + 5 + 1 + 1 = 27. An exception to the left–to–right reading occurs when a symbol is followed immediately by a symbol of greater value; then, the smaller value is substracted from the larger. For example, XLVI = (50 – 10) + 5 + 1 = 46.
