Amazingly, another solution: IVX :-) I don’t know the grammar for Roman numerals, so this could be 6 or 4… But I do think it makes some sense.

Another alternate answer: Draw the number 6 after the X.
When the I is seen as the number 1, and the X symbolizes multiplication, the number 6 drawn to the right of the X creates the mathematical problem: 1×6, which equals 6; therefore, satisfying the original problem.

just add an “S” symbol in the front, making it “SIX”
