Moved to proper section.

We are not here to do your homework. If your teacher won't help, then that should leave whatever book you're using in class.

My hint, you are looking for a "binary search."

Same as a "roman numeral" formatter thingy (dunno what to properly call it).

Run a loop, possibly a while loop. And subtract off the highest possible number each time till you get to 0 (more work is needed of course, conditionals, etc... but that is what you basically have to do).
