I=1 V=5 X=10 L=50 C=100 D=500 M=1,000 and if it has an underline (except "i") multiply by 1,000 (i.e. if you underline D it becomes 500,000 rather than 500.)

I don't understand why all maths quizzes give so little time. I think being able to do those calculations fast is one thing, but what is rarely tested is the ability to do more complicated calculations like taking roots, factoring or squaring.
