## Convert decimal tor roman numbers

To convert from decimal to roman, you need to find the closest roman numeral that is less than or equal to the decimal number and subtract it from the decimal number. Then repeat this process until the decimal number becomes zero. For example, to convert **2024** to roman, you can do:

2021 - 1000 = 1024, so write M

1021 - 1000 = 24, so write another M

24 - 10 = 14, so write X

14 - 10 = 4, so write another X

4-5 = -1, so write I and then V

The final result is **MMXXIV**.

## Convert from roman to decimal

To convert from roman to decimal, you need to add the values of the roman numerals from left to right, unless a smaller numeral comes before a larger one, in which case you need to subtract the smaller value from the larger one. For example, to convert **MMXXIV** to decimal, you can do:

M + M = 1000 + 1000 = 2000

X + X = 10 + 10 = 20

IV = 5-1 = 4

The final result is 2000 + 20 + 5 - 1 = **2024**.
