Year-end appeal: Please make a donation to the OEIS Foundation to support ongoing development and maintenance of the OEIS. We are now in our 59th year, we have over 358,000 sequences, and we’ve crossed 10,300 citations (which often say “discovered thanks to the OEIS”).

COMMENTS

The sequence contains only 224 terms and ends with 899.

Roman numerals use the letters I, V, X, L, C, D and M, combinations of which are used to represent numbers. Since the letters V, L and M are not horizontally symmetrical, numbers containing these letters are not part of the sequence. Importantly, Roman numerals for 900 and beyond will always contain the numeral M, so the sequence ends at 899.

EXAMPLE

Define two functions:

R(n) converts the number n to Roman number notation.

H[x] takes the argument x and produces a truth value, determining if the argument is horizontally symmetrical.

Hence,

for n = 1, R(n) = I, H[R(n)] = TRUE, so n = 1 is a term,

for n = 5, R(n) = V, H[R(n)] = FALSE, so n = 5 is not a term;

for n = 11, R(n) = XI, H[R(n)] = TRUE, so n = 11 is a term;

for n = 50, R(n) = L, H[R(n)] = FALSE, so n = 50 is not a term;

for n = 100, R(n) = C, H[R(n)] = TRUE, so n = 100 is a term;

for n = 900, R(n) = CM, H[R(n)] = FALSE, so n = 900 is not a term;

for n = 1000, R(n) = M, H[R(n)] = FALSE, so n = 1000 is not a term.
