Hey guys, I'm taking an intro level course on Python and i need to figure out how to get roman numerals to their integer values
so far i have this...
romaninput = raw_input("Enter the roman numeral to convert to Arabic: ") I = 1 V = 5 X = 10 L = 50 C = 100 D = 500 M = 1000 #first letter of roman value must be bigger than next in order to add the values if romaninput > romaninput: total = print "The roman numeral", romaninput, "is equal to", total #if letter is placed before a letter of greater values, subtract that amount
I know its not much, but I really don't know a lot about python.
Where I have "total =" I'm trying to get the roman values that the user inputs into the string to add up with a total of 3 repeating roman values. Ex: XXX = 30.
Any help would be appreciated,
