Convert 92 to a Roman numeral given that I=1, V=5, X=10, L=50, C=100, D=500, and M=1,000
We start with a total letter value of 92 that we want to work backwards with each letter until 0.
We want to build a Roman numeral term letter by letter as well, starting with nothing.
Dividing our current quantity of 92 by each Roman numeral Value, we need 1 of L
Since we want 3 or less of a letter and 3 of letter X won't work, we need to do special subtraction.
We take 1 letter of X written in front of the next letter up of C
We piece that together with our Roman numeral(s) term of to get: + XC = XC
Since we needed 1 of the letter X and 1 of the letter C, our total value of letters becomes: 100 - 10 = 90
Our new decreasing total now becomes: 92 - 90 = 2
Dividing our current quantity of 2 by each Roman numeral Value, we need 2 of letter I
We piece that together with our Roman numeral(s) term of XC to get: XC + II = XCII
Since we needed 2 of the letter I, our total value of letters becomes: 2 * 1 = 2
Our new decreasing total now becomes: 2 - 2 = 0
Since our decreasing total now equals 0, we have our answer of XCIIIn Microsoft Excel or , you write this function as =ROMAN(92)
