Word of the Day
A decade is a period of ten years. When talking about a person’s life or when talking about history, this word is very useful.
The Roman numeral for 10 is an X. Sometimes you will see years written in Roman numerals which resemble letters of the alphabet. For example, the year 2016 is written like this: MMXVI.
The M represents 1000 years. The X represents ten years. The V represents five years. The I represents one year. If you add them all together, you get 2016.
= 10 years
