Using Pandora's first one: II * VII = XIV

Move one match (or line) on both sides of
the = sign and end up with a new correct
equation. "Move" does not mean throw away:
simply means rearrange as you see fit:
like, X can become a V by moving one line...

Day#1 clue: one of the I's is "moved" such
that it become a division sign: /
As example: XXIII(23) changed to XX/II(10)

II*sqrt I = X/V move an I on the left to a horizontal position over the other I to form a sqrt sign newyear

Nope: you made 2 moves on left side; only 1 per side allowed...

Ahhh...real cute!

I was looking for: I * VI-I = X-V

There's another one, but a bit of a stretcher:
(i represent a line placed vertically but lower)
I * iVII = iXV
1 * 1^7 = 1^15
