What is \(6\) in ** English**? It is

Thus, we get ** \(6 = 8.5\)**!

Note : For those who are not familiar to Roman Numerals, \(S = \frac {1}{2} = 0.5, I = 1, X = 10\), and so \(SIX = 10 - 1 - 0.5 = 8.5\)

See this for more details on ** fractions** in Roman Numerals

For those who don't know why \(S = \frac {1}{2} = 0.5, I = 1, X = 10 \Rightarrow SIX = 8.5\) :

Note that \(IV = 4\), but \(V = 5, I = 1\), so \(IV = V - I = 4\), and so similarly \(SIX = X - I - S = 8.5\).
