Hi there,
I can’t find the symbol on character map for the 5,000 and 10,000, so for this question;
(V) = 5,000
(X) = 10,000
4,000 is written here as (MV). Should it be written as M (V)?

@Josh there is no symbol for 5000 and 10000, the bar (line on the top) represents a multiple of 1000, so anything underneath the bar gets multiplied by 1000.
So when you get to 1000 above that the M can be seen as the I for high numbers. 
So MV is 4. (think of it as IV) and with the bar above it the 4 gets multiplied by 1000 to get 4000.
so the X with the bar on top of it is not the symbol for 10000 as such it just represents 10 x 1000
