Is the entered Roman numeral, MCCCLXV, valid or not?

How to convert the Roman numeral:
MCCCLXV
written as a Hindu-Arabic number
(the numbers we use every day)

1. The Roman numerals used to make the conversion:

V = 5; X = 10; L = 50; C = 100; M = 1,000;

The basic reading rules of the Roman numerals


The Roman numerals must be written from left to right in descending order, by their value. Some symbols can be repeated up to 3 times in a row: I, X, C, M, (X), (C), (M).


A group of Roman numerals written in additive notation = a group of two or more numerals (letters), of equal value or sorted in descending order, by their value, from high to low. To calculate the value of the group, add up the values of the symbols that make up the group.
The additive notation in the writing of the Roman numerals


MCCCLXV is a valid Roman numeral.

MCCCLXV meets all the rules of writing Roman numerals.


2. Calculate the value of the Roman number.

Add up all the values of the individual Roman numerals:

MCCCLXV =


M + C + C + C + L + X + V =


1,000 + 100 + 100 + 100 + 50 + 10 + 5 =


1,365



MCCCLXV is a group of numerals written in additive notation.

Check the result (reverse the process).
How to convert the number 1,365

1. Break the number down to place value subgroups (decompose it):

1,365 =


1,000 + 300 + 60 + 5;


2. Convert each subgroup:

1,000 = M;


300 = 100 + 100 + 100 = C + C + C = CCC;


60 = 50 + 10 = L + X = LX;


5 = V;


3. Wrap up the Roman numeral (construct it):

1,365 =


1,000 + 300 + 60 + 5 =


M + CCC + LX + V =


MCCCLXV;


The final answer:

MCCCLXV is a valid Roman numeral.

MCCCLXV = 1,365

The set of basic symbols of the Roman system of writing numerals

The major set of symbols on which the rest of the Roman numberals were built:

(*) These numbers were written with an overline (a bar above) or between two vertical lines. Instead, we prefer to write these larger numerals between brackets, ie: "(" and ")", because:

(*) An overline (a bar over the symbol), two vertical lines or two brackets around the symbol indicate "1,000 times". See below...

Logic of the numerals written between brackets, ie: (L) = 50,000; the rule is that the initial numeral, in our case, L, was multiplied by 1,000: L = 50 => (L) = 50 × 1,000 = 50,000. Simple.

(*) At the beginning Romans did not use numbers larger than 3,999; as a result they had no symbols in their system for these larger numbers, they were added on later and for them various different notations were used, not necessarily the ones we've just seen above.

Thus, initially, the largest number that could be written using Roman numerals was:
