A well-known, but still often confusing feature of modern Roman numerals is the subtraction principle, which requires that a lower numeral appearing before a higher one[3] be subtracted from the higher value, not added to the total.
An exception is the numeral M, or 1000, which is used 4 times to represent our number 4000, since the Romans had no single-letter numeral representing a higher value than M. It is now also customary not to repeat the values V, L, or D (5, 50, or 500) in the same numeral.

For example, the minor tonic triad in a major key, labeled "i" with a Roman numeral, would be marked with a flat sign in figured bass, the flat sign referring to lowered third in the triad.
