Hexadecimal Color

Written by Jerry Ratzlaff. Posted in Algebra

Hexadecimal colors are used on web pages to set colors, a mix of "red", "green" and "blue" and their shades.

  • 0 to 255 in decimal, or
  • 00 to FF in hexadecimal
  • Because each of the colors have three possibilities, there are \( \;256^3\;=\;16,777,216\;\) combinations.
