Roman Numerals

The Anachronism's videos...

A few months ago, I had posted two videos about Roman Numerals.

In the first one, titled Roman Numerals, I spoke about the Roman Numeral system itself. I started with numerical face values and how the numbers were supposed to be written down. The numbers are inherently additive. However, we’ve often seen the subtractive forms of the same numbers and I’ve talked about that at length. Plus, I’ve also discussed addition and subtraction, both in the additive and subtractive forms of the operands.

Yeah! Even I wouldn’t understand anything I’ve said with that description above. If you’re interested in how Romans used to count, add, and subtract, please watch the following video.

If you’d like to go a step further, you might want to watch my second video, titled Multiplication in Roman Numerals.

Here, I’ve shown how conventional multiplication could be done with Roman numerals and suggested it’s a pretty tedious process. Romans multiplied differently and I’ve explained how that works with the aid of our current decimal system. It should be fun.

I guess I’ll have more videos out in the future, but this is all I’ve got for now. Thanks for reading and, if you have, thanks for watching…
