The Roman numeral basic units for numbers up to 100 are as follows: I is equal to one, V is equal to five, X is equal to 10, L is equal to 50 and C is equal to 100. A letter is only allowed to appear in succession three times.

Since the number 94 would be written LXXXXIIII, another rule must be used. If a lower-valued letter appears before a higher-valued letter, the lower value is subtracted from the higher value. Thus, since the number 90 is equal to 100 minus 10, it is written XC. The X before the C means ten less than 100. The number four is equal to five minus one, so it is written IV.
