Notwithstanding todays modern conversion of 1999 and 14 into Roman numerals which are MCMXCIX and XIV respectively inasmuch that there exist credible evidence to suggest that the ancient Romans would have added together the equivalent of 1999 and 14 in either of the following formats:- A: IMM+IXV = MMXIII => (2000-1)+(15-1) = 2013 B: MDCCCCLXXXXVIIII+XIIII = MMXIII => 1999+14 = 2013 Not that for more complicated calculations the ancient Romans would have used an abacus calculating device.

Nowadays we would express 19 in Roman numerals as XIX but in ancient Rome the equivalent of 19 was XVIIII or IXX thus facilitating the speed and ease of addition in either of the following formats:-IXX+LXII = LXXXI => (20-1)+62 = 81LXXXI+IXX = C => 81+(20-1) = 100Alternatively:-XVIIII+LXII = LXXXI => 19+62 = 81LXXXI+XVIIII = C => 81+19 = 100Note that the Latin word for XVIIII is novemdecim and and for IXX it is undeviginti but there is no Latin word for todays notation of 19 as XIX

To add 777 and 999 in Roman numerals, you can first convert the numbers to their Roman numeral equivalents. 777 is DCCCLXXVII and 999 is CMXCIX. Method 1: Add the two Roman numerals: DCCCLXXVII + CMXCIX = MDCCC LXXVI Method 2: Convert both numbers to their Arabic numeral equivalents, add them together, and then convert the sum back to Roman numerals: 777 + 999 = 1776, which can be written as MDCCLXXVI in Roman numerals.

In todays modern configurations of Roman numerals the equivalent of 1, 99 and 1900 are now officially set out as I, XCIX and MCM respectively which makes mathematical interaction amongst them quite difficult.Yet there is evidence to suggest that the ancient Romans would have probably added together the equvalent of the given numbers in either of the following formats:-A: I+IC+CMM = MM => 1+(100-1)+(2000-100) = 2000B: I+LXXXXVIIII+MDCCCC = MM => 1+99+1900 = 2000Note that for more complicated arithmetical problems the ancient Romans would have made use of an abacos calculating board.QED

Doing arithmetic with Roman numerals is exasperating, and imho a pointless waste of time, except to demonstrate the obvious superiority of our "normal numbers," which use base-10 radix / positional notation that includes a zero digit as a placeholder. I'd venture to say science & technology -- commerce, too -- could never have developed in recent centuries if we still used Roman numerals for calculations. However, this web site explains some methods: http://turner.faculty.swau.edu/mathematics/materialslibrary/roman/

Notwithstanding todays modern conversion of 999 into Roman numerals which are CMXCIX inasmuch that the ancient Romans in all probability would have added together the equivalent of 666 and 999 in either of the following formats:-A: DCLXVI+IM = MDCLXV => 666+(1000-1) = 1665B: DCLXVI+DCCCCLXXXXVIIII = MDCLXV => 666+999 = 1665QED

Cmxcix + xiv + mcmlxxxvii = mmm. It should be all in capital letters, but the system changed them.

The word "altogether" (completely, entirely) has a different meaning from "all together" (a collected group).

When in Rome do as the Roman do and the ancient Romans would have probably added together 1999 and 3001 in either of the following ways:- IMM+MMMI = (V) => (2000-1)+3001 = 1000*5 = 5000 MDCCCCLXXXXVIIII+MMMI = (V) => 1999+30001 = 5000 Note that in todays modern configuration of Roman numerals 1999 is now considered to be MCMXCIX

The wrong way and the right way which is as follows:- IX+IXX = XXVIII => (10-1)+(20-1) = 28 XXVIII+IMM = MMXXVII => 28+(2000-1) = 2027

Convert from Roman numerals to Arabic numerals, add, convert back to Roman numerals.
