ClocksRoman numerals make clocks and watches look way cooler and I prefer them, but Arabic numerals are better for doing things like math.

Style!While not being the easiest to learn Roman numerals sure are the most stylish and also the most classical of them. I have always been fascinated by Rome so my pick is Roman numerals

Exciting.The way Roman numerals are being written will make you want to learn more how to use it and the good thing about that is the need for you to adapt to the way the x and the I are being placed when writing it. The thing is that I really enjoyed learning it while I was at the primary school for it was a good experience for me back then.

FunRoman numerals are fun. The value of a number is a plus if a big number is followed by s small number. It decreases if a small number is before.IX=9. XI=11 XL=40 and LX is 60 You can only add three small values to a big valued one XIII LXxx etc

EasyI know both types of numbers with ease. We have learned the Roman numerals in school and I never had any big issues with understanding them but I do know that it causes confusion for many people.That's why the Arabic numerals are generally easier to use and they're the most common all around the world. If you go to other countries they will all use it as well. We are always taught the Arabic numbers from when we're born so they're just naturally far easier for us to understand.

More specificI like the Arabic or Hindu numbers because they are easier to write and seem to be more specific. This is what I would want when looking for the types of options that would be helpful to me.

Ease of use  less confusingMuch as I love the look of Roman numbers and particularly so on clocks, watches and other decorative items and do in fact in many ways much prefer them to Arabic numerals  for ease of use  my vote has to go with the latter.Especially as for the majority people  not only are Arabic numerals far less confusing for everyday use  but a larger majority of the world's population can relate to them too.

Easier and quicker to writeFirst of all Arabic numerals are recognized everywhere and people know them. I think that many people haven't heard of Roman numerals. Arabic numerals are also quicker to write. For writing 3 you have to write 3 seperate lines with roman numerals.

Easy to learn and write.Roman numerals are awesome. These are much use for formality purposes I think. But Arabic numerals are a lot easier than Roman numerals. You don't need to memorize letters converting them to numbers. Also Arabic is easier to read than Roman. If you all see that the most common use numeral is Arabic. Because I think it is not that complex than Roman.

Used to itProbably if I grew up using Roman numerals more as a standard I'd be used to it too and would prefer it as I would see it as being the more convenient between these two, but I grew up using this type of numerals so I'm just picking this because it's a lot more familiar to me and I'm much more used to it. I do think objectively it is also the more practical, but maybe I would not think so if I grew up using Roman numerals.

Most renowned numbersWe easily learn how to read and write these numbers ever since we're little and truly easy to understand. Most of the people know Arabic numerals and this is what we use for our everyday lives. We learned Roman numerals in elementary but you rarely will use this method when you grew up or for your everyday life so I can say that we should all stick to Arabic numerals since everyone is using it.

Easily understoodArabic numerals are what I have been used to all my. I can tell you very well that even today, I'm still not used to reading all the Roman numerals. It's just from 1 to 50 that I can easily read and remember in Roman numeral.

Widely used!I am not against roman numerals, but it is more convenient for us to use the Arabic numerals since it is widely used across different countries.

Easier to recognizeFor me, this form of numbers are easier to recognize and remember. With roman numerals I'm always messing up the order or forgetting which letter stands for what. I like simplicity!
Posted by amelia88 on 10152018


Easier to memorize.I prefer to use Arabic numerals because it's easier to memorize than the Roman numerals. I actually don't know a lot about Roman numerals and I can only count until 99 I guess or 100.
Posted by jaybee19 on 10312018

Toman numerals for me,Well maybe because that's what I'm.used to.Roman numerals helps in counting and it quite easy to use when counting. It looks style when it used in writing numbers or figures.it looks fanciful when used to write numbers on either watch or clock..

I did not know the numbers that we know today (1, 2, 3...) was actually called Arabic numbers and sometimes also referred as Hindu numbers. I am more used to Arabic numbers than the Roman numerals. I find roman numerals very confusing. I cannot do any calculation with Roman numerals.

I grew up in Arabic numbers and although we were taught the Roman numeral in school, I am not comfortable with it. Besides, what’s the point of using the Roman numeral when Arabic number is being used worldwide? So I’d say it is impractical to use the Roman numeral which is difficult to understand and difficult to write too.
Posted by Corzhens on 11132017


As a Math lover, I would prefer Arabic numbers since it's used worldwide and personally, I am at ease with it. It's more readable and less confusing. Roman numerals would be fine and readable for small numbers like in clocks or class sections. But for big numbers, calendar, calculator, prices, bank accounts, and a lot of things that we use everyday, Arabic number is much preferable. It's generally more useful and known to people around the world. Personally, I love doing calculations using Arabic numbers.

I guess this Arabic number won's the battle against Roman number. Since this Arabic numerals was the mos used system of numbering in this world, so it is so clear that this is the better one. :)

The Arabic number or the traditional for me. It's very easy to use, and understand it We don't need to use another form of numbers, although, Roman numerals also easy to understand but for me, their use is, or let me say, much appropriate use of Roman numerals is to know how old the building or structures, something like written at the top of every structures, like museum, building hall, something like that, example, Erected or build MDCC.

The Arabic numeral has a great impact on our daily lives now all over the world, so it is much flexible to use and it also help in solving complex calculation than the Roman numerals.
Posted by babyright on 04042018


Both Arabic numerals and Roman Numerals are already known but arabic is more preferably used by us folks. It's more understandable and easy to read when we use the arabic numerals maybe because every number has it's differences when it comes to its writing so it is easy to identify what number it is. Unlike Roman Numerals you have to count how many I's or V's or X's your going to read so its much easier if the first 10 numbers has it's differences.

Arabic numerals are much easier to use whereas the Roman ones take up too much space and are more difficult to understand. We should go with the times and use Arabic numbers for ease and it is what we are used to. I really don't think that the numbering system will ever change as the Arabic system works very well and much better than the Roman ones. It is nice to see the Roman numerals used sometimes, like on the telly, but we don't always know what they mean.

I prefer Arabic numerals for their simplicity. Honestly, basic calculation need not be more complicated. It's best to keep things neat and quick to grasp.
Posted by Steve5 on 05102018


Well, honestly, I couldn't decide which one should I prefer because I like both to use. Yes, I agree that Arabic numerals are the one we use today and those numbers are easy to read and to understand while the roman numerals are quite hard to read and to use since you'll gonna do the some math sometimes in order for you to write it down correctly. But it depends on the usage of these two style of writing a number. For me, Roman numerals are often use in formal documentations while Arabic numerals are often use to everyday life.
Posted by mitan143 on 05132018


Most of us, rather arabic instead of roman numbers, because those are the ones we use at all of our activities everyday. Is not that they are easy or simple than the others, is just that we take them as common, while for sure we only see roman ones at clocks, watches, or at school. Honestly, I always get somehow confused when it comes to roman numbers, so it takes a while for me to think about them and get the correct equivalence, so that's the lack of practice because I don't use them regularly.

Both Arabic and Roman numeral are interesting to learn and basically, these two numbering systems are well known in my country. I learned both in my primary years. If I may choose which is better and easier for me to use, I would prefer using the Arabic numerals instead of Roman numerals. Roman number system is tricky and sometimes misleading especially in bigger value. Arabic numerals are commonly known. When I buy in the grocery, when I need to pay something, the numbers in our paper and coin money are in Arabic numerals so it is easier to read, calculate and use because they are simpler.
