six(6, in words) - ix (9 as a roman numeral) = s= chemical symbol for sulpher

five(5, in words) - iv(5,  in roman numeral) = fe = chemical symbol for iron.

nine (9,  in words) - i(1,  in roman numeral) = nin, where n = chemical symbol for nitrogen and ne= chemical symbol for neon.

Thus we obtain Nitrogen and Neon upon subtraction of i from 9.
