00:00:00.000 --> 00:00:05.000
So, let's solve the Roman numerals. This is pretty simple.
2
00:00:05.000 --> 00:00:07.980
Let's look at the part that we know, the last part.
3
00:00:07.980 --> 00:00:14.160
D is 500, C is 100, so we have DCCC is 800,
4
00:00:14.160 --> 00:00:19.450
L is 50 and VII is 7, we have 857.
5
00:00:19.450 --> 00:00:24.450
And we have an equals here on the end.
6
00:00:24.450 --> 00:00:28.450
And before this, we have C - let's forget about the bar for a moment -
7
00:00:28.700 --> 00:00:33.450
C is 100, XL is 40 and II is 2 so we have -
8
00:00:33.700 --> 00:00:37.710
142 and when we join it we see it's 142 thousand
9
00:00:37.710 --> 00:00:41.280
so what the bar on the top is telling us - it's in the thousands.
10
00:00:41.280 --> 00:00:46.280
So we have a house with 7 in it is equal to 142,857.
11
00:00:46.280 --> 00:00:50.430
Just a minute, that looks familiar!
12
00:00:50.430 --> 00:00:57.190
We have 142,857 over here and 142,857 over here.
13
00:00:57.190 --> 00:01:02.420
Fancy that!
