# Need a bit of help

Hey guys im trying to get this to work but I can’t for reason, can you
look over it and tell me the problem, the first part will work 1-9 but
when I do the array variable to 1-1000 I cant seem to get it to do it.
Please Help heres the code

# if number > 5

``````# result = 'V' + 'I' * (number - 5)
``````

# else

``````# result = 'I' * number
``````

# end

\$numerals = [
[1000, ‘M’],
[500, ‘D’],
[100, ‘C’],
[50, ‘L’],
[10, ‘X’],
[5, ‘V’],
[1, ‘I’]
]
def roman_numeral(number)
\$numerals.each do |decimal, numeral|

# do something interesting with each decimal, numeral pair

end
end
(1…49).each() do |my_number|
puts roman_numeral(my_number)
end

Looks like we have another kid with the same homework. It is becoming
pretty popular here ;-). Please look through yesterday’s subjects to
find a relevant discussion. Or even better – think harder for yourself.
