I once posted, I don’t know if It was on this list or Facebook, the steps needed to subtract large numbers using Roman Numerals. They are almost the same as the steps used in the New New Math.

Do you have the ability to write if you can, with difficulty and
concentration, sign your name?

Numeracy is even more complicated; carrying out arithmetic with the Roman
