Moving only one element, make the following expression true:

DX = IX

Adding one element, make the following expression true:

IX = VI

In both cases exclude the obvious method of transforming the equal sign into the inequality sign.

Spoiler for Hint

Pretty easy once I read the hint.

Nice. Yeah, I'm kicking myself. Unfortunately, I spent almost all my thought on the first one, rather than the second, but I don't know a bit of French, so I wasn't getting anywhere. If I had started with the second one, perhaps I would have figured it out. Yeah, I'll just keep telling myself that until I feel better. 5 stars.
