What number comes next in this series?

100, 500, 1, 50, 1000, 5, ???

100, 500, 1, 50, 1000, 5, ???

### Hint

Cento, cinquecento, uno, cinquanta, mille, cinque.### Answer

10 will come next.The numbers are all from Roman Numerals, when they are in order alphabetically.

It should look like this:

C (100), D (500), I (1), L (50), M (1000), V (5) and then X (10).

The hint shows all of the numbers in Italian. Since Rome is the capital of Italy, this is a slight hint to Roman Numerals.
