Identifying Leading Tones and Writing Roman Numerals
Each of the following chords is either a triad or seventh chord built on scale degree [latex]\hat5[/latex] or [latex]\hat7[/latex]. Look for the leading tone in each chord. If the leading tone is already present, circle it. If not, add an accidental to create a leading tone. Finally, add a Roman numeral with the appropriate bass figures on the line below.
