If

4 + 4 = 8

10 - 5 = 5

5 x 1 = 5

8 - 1 = 7

2 + 4 = 7

Then,

8 / 1 = ?

Is it 6 or 7 ?

4 + 4 = 8

IV + IV = 8 strokes to write out (for example, the + sign is 2 strokes)

10 - 5 = 5

X - V = 5 strokes

5 x 1 = 5

V x I = 5

8 - 1 = 7

VIII - I = 7

2 + 4 = 7

II + IV = 7

So....

VIII / I = 7 strokes to write out
