He collected boxes from various people in his local village and each box was labelled in Roman Numerals with the number of cakes in the box. By the time the errand boy has collected the last box. he was quite hungry, and really needed to eat at least one cake. Luckily the last box was marked with an underlined XI, meaning there was 11 cakes in it.
