# Roman Numeral Converter JS

I haven’t really gotten to the projects yet… actually I’m still at the Basic Javascript, but I just had to get this out of my head. This is the solution I came up with. It seems to work on the numbers I tried.

let i=0;
let j = [1000,500,100,50,10,5,1];
let k = [900,400,90,40,9,4,1];
let c = “”;
let p = “”;
let str = “”;

function rconvert(a,i){
if(a>3999){
return str = ‘Still need to work on that…’
}

switch (i){
case 0: c=“M”;
break;
case 1: c=“D”;
break;
case 2: c=“C”;
break;
case 3: c=“L”;
break;
case 4: c=“X”;
break;
case 5: c=“V”;
break;
case 6: c=“I”;
break;
}

switch (i){
case 0: p=“CM”;
break;
case 1: p=“CD”;
break;
case 2: p=“XC”;
break;
case 3: p=“XL”;
break;
case 4: p=“IX”;
break;
case 5: p=“IV”;
break;
case 6: p=“I”;
break;
}

if (a>=j[i] && i<=6){
str+=c;
rconvert(a-j[i],i);
} else if(a<j[i]&&a>=k[i]){
str+=p;
rconvert(a-k[i],i);
} else if (a<j[i]&&a<k[i]){
rconvert(a,i+1);
}
}

rconvert(349,i);
console.log(str);
