The Romans had a completely different number system. We often write Roman numerals after the names of kings and queens, for example Henry VIII instead of Henry 8th.
The Romans only had seven symbols.
1,2,3 is I, II, III but 4 is IV which is 1 less than 5.
6 is VI which is 1 more than 5.
10,20 30 is X, XX, XXX but 40 is XL which is 10 less than 50.
60 is LX which is 10 more than 50
12 = 10 + 2 = X + II = XII
523 = 500 + 20 + 3 = D + XX + III = DXXIII
982 = 900 + 80 + 2 = CM + LXXX + II = CMLXXXII
