I think you can make 1000 also - any roman numeral with a line over it multiplys by 1000, unless I'm wrong of course

Sorry guys, that was a mistake. Actually, that is 10. Fifty is O ..

Now, you can see that I don't know Arabic script/ language.

What about writting it in sand or some other surface like that.

For the sake of the riddle, use one stick for the 5 and the other for the 0.
