• Is there a limit on how many numerals there are in a number?
• Yes, Numbers greater than 1,000 are formed by placing a dash over the symbol, meaning "times 1,000" but that's harder stuff for a later time. Check out the website MathIsFun https://www.mathsisfun.com/roman-numerals.html i use it a lot to find easy explanations as well as WikiHow, bookmark it so you can go there and look up anything you want to that may help :)

• Did you know the number zero was made in India!
• why cant there be 4 of one numercal?
• Because then the number will be too long, and it wont fit when you don't have much space.
• I learned something. From ` 3:08` to ` 3:40`, can you really use Hindu Arabic's and Roman's system?
