The numbers continue in this pattern. Up to three digits may come after the number and up to one digit may come before, so 11 is XI [10(X) + 1(I)], 12 is XII, 13 is XIII and 14 is XIV [10(X) + 4(IV)]. The numeral for 50 is L, 100 is C, 500 is D and 1000 is M.

After 1000, a line drawn above the numeral indicates that the number is 1,000 times that amount. A V with a line over it would indicate 5,000, and an X with a line over it would indicate 10,000. A C with a line over it would indicate 100,000, and an M with a line over it would indicate the number 1,000,000. The Romans did not have a symbol for zero.

Roman numerals are generally used today to indicate copyright dates and the order of rulers or ships that share the same name.
