After teaching his class all about roman numerals (X = 10, IX=9 and so on) the teacher asked his class to draw a single continuous line and turn IX into 6. The only stipulation the teacher made was that the pen could not be lifted from the paper until the line was complete.

simple. simply put the letter s in front. That is very old, I remember it from when I was in grade school, ans did my mother when I showed it to her way back then.
