Converting Roman numerals to arabic Numbers
posted by Rina .
1) CCXIX
C = 100
X = 10
I = 1
because there are 2 C's I added them together and I got 200
because there are 2 X's I added them together and got 20
because there is 1 I that equaled 1
So I added 200 + 20 + 1 = 221 which is my final answer
But according to the back of the book the answer is 219. Please help me determine how they got 219 for the answer or am I correct. Thank you

They are correct, IX is 9 XIX is 19

Ok, what did the Roman Catholic Monk say when the hit the golf ball? IV

Bobpursley and your book are right.
I = 1
II = 2
III = 3
IV = 4
V = 5
VI = 6
VII = 7
VIII = 8
IX = 9
X = 10
Notice that 4 is made by putting I in front of V. 51=4
Notice that 9 is made by putting I in front of X. 101=9
Let us know if you have questions. 
How does IX equal 9? I thought X represented 10 and I represented 1?

See above.

Oh ok I got it now thank you so much

You're welcome.
