Anybody else frustrated with hex colors?

Is anyone else frustrated with the rgb color questions in html challenges? How many developers REALLY KNOW all the combinations. I mean yeah the ones that we each use alot we might remember, but certainly not all of them, or even most of them, and I think it's a little ridiculous to have them as challenge questions... just In my opinion.. Anybody else feel this way?

I'm ok with this. But I understand it may be confusing for beginners. However, HTML course covers this question in "HTML basics" section. So you better be ready for such challenges ūüėČ

#494949 is grey color. When red, green, blue is of same value, it is grey color. #777777, #808080, #A9A9A9 are just different shades of grey color. #0FAIL0. If I remember correctly (didn't participate in html challenge for quite a while), the question is on valid hex code where the incorrect hex code is consists of 7 value. Both is quite valid question in my opinion. However, if the question ask which hex code is cyan color. That is too much/difficult for me as well.

I'm ok with certain ones, like the basics of it.. all zeros = black, all f's =white or even making sure you know the order, red = 255, 255, 0, 0, 0, 0. green = 0, 0, 255, 255,0,0 etc. but some i had were #494949, and #0FACE0... those are ridiculous in my opinion.

For hex color values, split the value into 3. Taking #0FACE0 as an example, you can figure out the dominant color if you split the hex value into groups of 2. r: 0F, g: AC, b: E0. As you can see, b contains the largest hex value, therefore the answer to the challenge question should be blue

It's like mixing paint, but on a TV screen with rgb: 00 is a pixel with zero intensity : black, and FF is the full intensity but all 3 colors must be full to get white. Tips: to get yellow #FFFF00, purple is #FF00FF. To darken a tone evenly reduce the values proportionally, or bring them closer to each other for less saturation (medium gray #888888). Once you're comfortable with this, add the alpha, then switch to HSB you will be well rewarded

Also keep in mind that hex digits are in base 16 (0-F)

@SC Lee, i think i ran into one that i actually had to I know #0fail0, i may be mistaken but yes the other question where i need to verify if its a legit one or not is definitely a valid/great question but having to know exact color is just too much edit: meant to say #0face0 not #0fail0
