  2. The values of the numerals making up a number are summed to determine the value of the number (but see note 3).
  3. When a smaller numeral immediately precedes a larger one (which is usually the next largest numeral), the smaller is subtracted from the larger (eg, IX stands for 10 − 1, or 9).
  4. A numeral with a macron over it stands for 1000 times the numeral without the macron.
  5. The lower-case numerals are often used to number the pages of introductory chapters of books.
