What is the chord structure of the 12 Bar blues in Roman numerals? by Kalelah Q: I know about the 12 Bar blues as I have been learning a little bit about it in music and doing triads etc but i'm not sure of the roman numerals.

A: 12 bar blues is what's known as a 1-4-5, or in roman numerals, I-IV-V If you're playing blues in E, the E is the 1, or I... counting up from E, you have F as the 2, or II, G is the 3, or III, and A is the 4, or IV. B would be the 5, or in roman numerals V. Notice we are not counting sharps/flats, but full steps, therefore a 12 bar blues in the key of E means the chords are going to be E-A- and B. 12 bar blues in A would mean the chords are A-D- and E (A is the one, B would be the 2, C is the 3, and D is the 4, making E the 5. A-D-E 1-4-5.... or I-IV-V 12 bars...with 4 beats per measure, in the key of E, basically means this..... E-2-3-4.....E-2-3-4...E-2-3-4...E-2-3-4 A-2-3-4.....1-2-3-4 E-2-3-4.....1-2-3-4 B-2-3-4 A-2-3-4 E-2-3-4...1-2-3-4 Hope that made sense?

What is the correct way to write 4 in Roman numerals? by oldteacher Q: I have noticed lately than most clocks w/Roman numerals use IIII, but in my math books (I have taught for 40 years) the correct way is IV. Is the IIII a newer way or is there another explanation?

A: There is one reason why IIII is preferable to IV, and it may have caused the change. On the other side of the clock dial the VIII is the heaviest number, consisting of four heavy strokes and one light one, as it is usually made. It would destroy the symmetry to have the IV with only two heavy strokes on the other side. Thus IIII with four heavy strokes is much to be preferred. The change may therefore have been made for reasons of symmetry. John313181, IX is only 3 positions away from XII, whereas IV (or IIII if you like) is 4 positions away. VIII is the same distance from XII as IV (IIII). However, for reasons other than clockmaking, I agree IV is preferable and more logical than IIII.

Why does the Super Bowl use Roman numerals instead of the year? by Click Click Derk Q: Why is it that every Super Bowl ever, all of them used Roman numerals like (XXL) instead of the actual year? Its so confusing to be able to follow it right. Why do they think they so special that they have to use that instead of the year like every other sport?

A: This is just a guess, but maybe because the NFL season begins in one year and ends in another, so instead of using the year they number the seasons. Like I said just a guess!

How to insert roman numerals using microsoft word 2007? by Q: I am working on my thesis and copyied and pasted the first section that requires roman numerals as page numbers into one document and then the rest of the text that should be standard page numbers into another document.

How do you figure out Roman Numerals for Seventh Chords? by Q: I'm having trouble figuring out what roman numerals go with seventh chords. I know what the chords are, but I don't fully know the process of going about getting the number for the roman numerals.

A: Well in traditional analysis you just need to add a 7 after the numeral. So let's just look at C major, you've got C Dm Em F G Am and Bdim. C is the first chord, so that's the I chord. D is the second chord, so it's the ii chord. Lower case indicates minor. Diminished chords are indicated by a little degree sign. In a major key, a 7th chord built off scale degree 7 is a half diminished 7th. It is indicated by a degree sign with a line through it. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Half-diminished_seventh_chord If you just write a normal degree sign, it's a diminished 7th chord. There IS a difference.

What are 3 ways that roman numerals are used today? by Q: I'm doing a presentation for school on Roman numerals and I need a concluding statement that shows different ways that Roman numerals are used today.

A: They are still used in almost all cases for the copyright date on films, television programmes, and videos - for example MCMLXXXVI for 1986. You can see an example of the current copyright date written in this way on the web at the BBC site, currently of course MMV. They are also used to show the hours on some analogue clocks and watches. Intel, the computer chip maker, called the new version of its Pentium processor launched in May 1997 the Pentium II. They can be used for the preliminary pages of book before the main page numbering gets under way. Here they numerals normally use lower case letters so pages i, iv, xi and so on. Sporting events are often numbered using Roman numerals. The Athens Olympics in 2004, the 28th games in modern times, were called the Games of the XXVIII Olympiad, showing that it is the 28th games of the modern era since the first in 1896. The 2006 Winter Games in Torino, Italy will be the XX Winter Games; they began in 1924 and were in the same year as the Summer games until 1992. Beijing will be the XXIX Olympiad in 2008 and the 2012 Games won by London will be the XXX Olympiad. When counting Olympic Games the ones cancelled during war in 1916, 1940, and 1944 are included. In the USA the American football championship is called Super Bowl. In 2005, the 39th championship was Super Bowl XXXIX and the 2006 event will be Super Bowl XL. Monarchs are usually numbered in Roman - eg King Edward VII of England, Louis XIV of France. Popes are also numbered using Roman numerals so the late Pope was John Paul II and the current Pope is Benedict XVI. This form is also sometimes seen in naming eldest sons in American families where successive generations bear the same first name. The first time it happens the son is called Junior or Jr. In further generations Roman numerals are used. They are found in numbering paragraphs in complex documents to clarify which are main sections and which subsections so II.3.iv.(5). And they are used for similar reasons to show the volume number of periodicals eg vol.VI no.5. The New York Times still does this on its front page - eg VOL. CXLVII..No.51,305. You will sometimes find the first and second world wars referred to as World War I and World War II or even WWI and WWII. Roman numerals can be seen on public buildings, monuments and gravestones, sometimes when the inscription is in Latin but often just to give the date a certain gravity. On gravestones, as well as the date of death, Roman numerals can be used for the age of the deceased. Before the 18th century they were widely used for the publication date on printed books. Since that time they are still sometimes found on the title page, usually on specially printed or luxurious editions

Why do the roman numerals mean in the name of chemical formulae? by Sirakyn Q: I have a few questions: Is this numbering limited only to the transition metals? As if it is something like Tungsten (VI) Fluoride it refers to Tungsten. Does VI mean the charge? Can an element have a 6+ charge? Basically, do the roman numerals mean the charge? All metals are with a + charge right? Appreciate your help. Very, very much.

A: yes they do mean the charge e.g. Iron (II) Oxide = Fe 2+ O 2- Iron (III) Phosphate = Fe 3+ PO4 3- Copper (II) Sulphate = Cu 2+ SO4 2- Technically they are only linked to transition metals, because transition metals can have different valencies/charges. Metals only lose electrons so they are always with a positive/+ charge. some elements can have a 6+ charge but i havent seen one before, but some transition metals might be able to. e.g. your example Tungsten (VI) flouride is WFe6 is W 6+

Should we switch from Arabic numerals back to good old fashioned Roman numerals due to the terrorism? by Q: Should we really use the numbers of the people who are trying to kill us? Should we go back to Roman numerals since they seem friendlier?

Where would a tattoo of roman numerals look good on a woman? by Dexter goes rawr Q: I'm considering in the [near] future getting a tattoo done of roman numerals. Yes, these numbers mean something important to me. I'm not sure exactly where to get them. I've been tossing around either on my rib cage or on my back right/left shoulder blade. Where do you think a roman numeral tattoo would look good on a woman? I'm up for any suggestions.

A: Well, that depends on the woman, the numerals, and their overall artistic design, really. Also, placement would be key. The ribcage area actually sounds lovely, if you're looking for a larger piece. No doubt it will be painful, but tattoos will be uncomfortable to get, no matter where you get them...you might as well get one where you really want it -- and, wouldn't mind seeing there permanently. Some of the most beautiful tattoos I've ever seen have been along someone's side, across their ribs. If you'd like a smaller piece, I like the inside of the wrist and the lowest base of the neck, right above the center of the shoulder blades.

How do I change roman numerals to arabic in Word 2007? by caitybird08 Q: I am writing my thesis, and I need the first page to have no numbers (which I have already), the numbering to start on the second page, and the first four pages need to be roman numerals--the rest will be Arabic numbers starting with one. Can anyone help me do this? Thanks!

A: This is going to be a bit long, but it should do it. (I am going to include your first page in case anyone else needs the answer to this question) This works for either the header or footer, I am going to explain the header. 1. On the second page of your document, go the the "Insert" tab in the "Header & Footer" group select "Page Number". Choose "Top of the Page" Choose "Roman 1" 2. The "Header & Footer Tools" "Design" tab will become visible. Check the box in the "Options" group that says "Different First Page". (This will remove the number from the first page.) 3. Click "Close Header and Footer" button in the "Close" group. 4. Go to the bottom of the 4th page and go to the "Page Layout" tab. Click the "Breaks" button in the "Page Setup" group. Select "Next Page" under the "Section Breaks" heading. 5. (You may need to hit the delete button once or twice, as most of the time the section break will add an extra page) 6. Go to the "Insert" tab and click "Page Number" in the "Header & Footer" group. Click "Top of Page" and choose "Plain Number 1". 7. In the "Design" tab under the "Header & Footer Tools", turn off the "Link to Previous" button in the "Navigation" group. (This will allow your numbering to start back at 1.) 8. In the "Header & Footer" group click the "Page Number" button and go to "Format Page Numbers...". 9. Choose your number format, in this case Arabic. Click the "Start at:" button, and make sure it says "1". And there you have it. I hope this helps

What Roman Numerals are there, and what number do they equal to? by Q: Well, i haven't worked with roman numerals for about a year or two. And i need to know them to make a school project more formal.

A: Here's the numerals: I = 1 V = 5 X = 10 L = 50 C = 100 D = 500 M = 1000 and here's how to use them: I - 1 II - 2 III - 3 IV (1 before 5) - 4 V - 5 VI - 6 VII - 7 VIII - 8 IX (1 before 10) - 9 X - 10 XI - 11 XII - 12 etc. XX is 20 XXIII is 23 XXIX would be 29, while XXX is 30 XL is 40. 49 would not be IL (1 before fifty), but would be 40 + 9 = XLIX XC is 90 CD is 400 CM is 900 999 would be CMXCIX. The year 2009 would be written as MMIX. Basically, you will never need to put more than 3 of the same letter in a row. Notice that there is no zero.

How do I use roman numerals when naming transition metals in compounds? by Q: Alright, my first chemistry test is roughly two weeks away and I'm having trouble understanding the proper usage of roman numerals when naming compounds in Chemistry. I know that you use roman numerals when dealing with transition metals but thats it. For example, FeCL2 is Iron(II) Chloride and Fe2O3 is Iron(III) Oxide, how do you get the roman numerals in the proper names? Thanks in advance!

A: These roman numerals are used to specify the oxidation state, or charge of that atom. This means that Fe(II) is the same as Fe2+, which means that the Fe atom has lost 2 electrons, leaving it with a positive charge of 2+. This is important to know in order to balance compounds and do reactions. For example, if someone says "what is the formula for iron (II) nitrate?", I can see that the charge on iron, Fe, is 2+ because of the II in parenthesis. I know that nitrate, NO3- has a charge of -1, so I need 2 nitrates for every iron in order to cancel the charge. Therefor, iron (II) nitrate is Fe(NO3)2. Alternatively, if I see the compound Fe(NO3)2, I can figure out the name by knowing that since N03- has a negative charge, and there are 2 of them, together they have a charge of -2, so I need a charge of +2 to cancel it out. Therefore, iron, Fe, has a charge (oxidation state) of 2+, and so it is written as Iron (II) Nitrate. The same goes if it has a charge/oxidation state of 3, it is written and Iron (III). Hope this helps!

A: ID For those ppl giving you C's and L's it is because there are many ways, they are correct also, but mine is the simplest was to indicate 499 because D is 500 and I is 1 so 500 minus 1 is 499 ID is 499 DI is 501 For example 55 can be: XXXXXV VVVVVVVVVVV (many more combinations) or in simplest, LV since L is 50 and V is 5 Put it this way, its how the Romans would have written 499, which is the simplest form- ID __________________________ Roman Numeral Referance Sheet I 1 V 5 X 10 L 50 C 100 D 500 M 1000
