Answer

$\overline{V}DCCCXLVII$

Work Step by Step

RECALL: $M=1000 \\D=500 \\C=100 \\L=50 \\X=10 \\V=5 \\I=1$ (1) When a smaller numeral is written before a bigger numeral, the smaller numeral is subtracted to the bigger numeral. (2) When a bar is written on top, the value is multiplied by 1000. Note that: $5847 = 5000+800+40+7 \\5847=5000+500+100+100+100+(50-10) + 5 + 1 + 1 \\5847= \overline{V}DCCCXLVII$
