We use a six digit
number to tell the computer what color we would like it to
display. In other words, the number has six places: the first
two digits tell the computer how much red light to mix, the
second: how much green light, and the third: how much blue
Here is an example of a color and its code:
Notice that there are two 0s in the beginning.
Remember, the first two numbers represent the amount of red
light, so how much red light is in this color (none, some,
all the red light possible, I don't know)?
