2 swer Question Number 2 to 4 on the basis of the information given below: The seven basic symbols in a certain number system and their respective vales are as follows : I =1 , V = 5, X =10 , L=50 , C=100 , D= 500 and M = 1000 In general, the symbols in the number system are read from left to right, starting with the symbol representing the largest value; the same symbol cannot occur continuously more than three times; the value of the numeral is the sum of the values of the symbols. For example, XXVII = 10+10+5+1+1 = 27 . An exception to the left-to-right reading occurs when a symbol is followed immediately by a symbol of greater value; then the smaller value is subtracted from the larger. For example, XLVI = (50-10) + 5 + 1 = 46. 2.The value of the numeral MDCCLXXXVII isa. 1687b. 1787c. 1887d. 1987
