I finished all of these with 2:01 left, I am only 2 months old and have already studied all the great Roman literature. I grew up in a poor neighborhood in Naples and yet I can recite Pliny's great works verbatim.
Good Quiz, anyone doing this quiz must like a challenge. then try 'The CHALLENGE' ..... at ... ... http://www.jetpunk.com/user-quizzes/120558/the-challenge
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.)
For those of us not familiar with roman numerals, this is a great test of working memory: I could not get this test when I normally take quizzes, at night, but now, after a night's sleep got it on the first try with 25 s remaining.
I have the opposite the first 3-5 numbers went slow, after that it was just more and more like normal numbers. Like what happens when you read backwards, upside down, or wehn sntecenes are witertn lkie tihs.
good challenge, felt impossible at the beginning with only 11 but after 5 or six attempts eventually got it, you just start to do more of it unconsciously
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.
I dont like roman numerals. The fact we do them every year in school for about 1 week, and then forget it, just makes you have to learn them agian. So this took me 3 days.
My skills are useless in the real world.
