AS CUTE AS THAT WAS....IT WAS PRETTY BORING

I started to think X then 9 l's but then I realisedd that was too long.Then I read the answer.

XIX I was thinking, how could I miss that!?

Ok.

That was pretty cute! I forgot I was in the trick section. I just thought it wasa really easy question.

boooooooooooooo . tricky trickster !

My math teacher put that on a worksheet, though with a bigger number. I didn't think that was a fair questio to put on an assignment!

Haha.... I loved it when teachers did stuff like that!! Good teaser JessicaLyn. Simple but cute.

i was thinking that since it said "numeral", its more then one [roman] numeral for 19...i dunno..good teaser though!

Can u say?.....EASY!?!?!

good teaser.....it tricked me 4 a sec

That was interesting!

SOO easy!!!

Haha

You got me there!!

XIX

haha

You got me there!!

XIX

haha

Last I checked they're called roman NUMERALS because they are NUMERALS. The numbers 1, 2, etc. are referred to as Arabic numerals. Thus either 19 or XIX is correct.

okay I was thinking XIX, but XIX is 19 so I guess I got it right ..

Great one Jessica!!

i thought it was xviiii,x for 10,v for 5,and 41s =19

i thought it was xviiii,x for 10,v for 5,and 41s =19

That was pretty ordinary

I got it

yay

yay

I agree with the guy who said XIX and 19 are both wrong. XIX is made up of 3 "Roman numerals" and 19 is is made up of 2 "Arabic numerals."

not fair

whoa u tricked me good

Got tricked!

ooooooohhhhhhhh! I get it!

1,2,3 ... 9 are digits as well as numerals. 11, 12 , 13 are numerals but composed of 2 digits. There are many numerals for 19 including XIX , 19 and 23 (octal).

good one! u caught me off gaurd... i thought it was either IXX or XIX!

i got that in a split second

i got tricked but great teaser

Pretty easy

I never get these right and I got that right

easy but XIX did pop in my head for a second

Same as the previous

I agree, it was a pretty silly attempt at a trick and XIX are every bit as much numerals as are 19. Kind of an air ball there.

Geez, people. It's a teaser. Nobody forced you to read it.

Good teaser, it also got me thinking of what 19 actually was in roman numerals. A little easy, though. I hope I'm not offending anyone.

I feel so smart that I got that one.
