You can have up to 3 lots of the same letter together

III

1 + 1 + 1 = 3

XXX

10 + 10 + 10 = 30

Rule 2

If a smaller number is after a larger number add it.

VI

5 + 1 = 6

XII

10 + 1 + 1 = 12

Rule 3

If a smaller number if before the larger subtract it.

IV

1 less than 5 = 4

IX

1 less than 10 = 9
