The number 1965 is written in Roman numerals as MCMLXV. Here's a simple step-by-step guide on how to change MCMLXV to a number:

Step 1: Take the Roman numeral apart into its parts.

M (1000), CM (900), LX (60), and V are the Roman numerals that make up MCMLXV (5).

Step 2: Write down what each Roman numeral stands for.

M represents 1000, CM represents 900, LX represents 60, and V represents 5.

To turn MCMLXV into a number, we just add the values of the Roman numerals that make it up:

M + CM + LX + V = 1000 + 900 + 60 + 5 = 1965

So, MCMLXV is the same as the number 1965.
