Best Answer

In ancient Rome the numerals of VL would have been perfectly acceptable as being the equivalent of 45.

But the real rules governing the original Roman numeral system were changed during the Middle Ages and as a result the equivalent of 45 in Roman numerals today is considered to be XLV.
