Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Not if you understand how the Hexadecimal code works. If you understand the layout you can make any color you want with only swapping a number @kyber Names are for wimps when you've got millions of codes and all you have to do is find the sequencing. When you learn that you can create any color you want with only the typing of a couple of memorized number letter mixtures that all follow each other in a specific order that once you get it is dumbly easy.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.26You need to put your words in brackets if you want to write more. `\(\huge\tt\color{red}Tomatoes\)` will give you \(\huge\tt\color{red}Tomatoes\). So then you can do `\(\color{red}{\huge\tt{Tomatoes}}\)` for \(\color{red}{\huge\tt{Tomatoes}}\). As far as I know. Parth taught me that.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Yea my explanatin only works when you use 1 character. Like in this code: `\(\color{red}{\huge\tt{T}}\color{orange}{\huge\tt{r}}\color{gold}{\huge\tt{y}}\) \(\color{forestgreen}{\huge\tt{t}}\color{teal}{\huge\tt{h}}\color{blue}{\huge\tt{i}}\color{blueviolet}{\huge\tt{s}}\)` You can reduce it to: `\(\huge\tt\color{red}T\color{orange}r\color{gold}y~\color{forestgreen}t\color{teal}h\color{blue}i\color{blueviolet}s\)` \(\huge\tt\color{red}T\color{orange}r\color{gold}y~\color{forestgreen}t\color{teal}h\color{blue}i\color{blueviolet}s\)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Math lesson 1: Do you know why there are 16 million possible color combinations? Answer: These colors are written in hexadecimal, where we use letters AF and 09. Now AF is like 6 letters and 09 is 10 different numbers. So there are 16 total characters in hex. Hey, now you have six letters in hex to make a color, like \(\rm \color{red}{FF0000}\) or \(\color{#C00}{C00000}\). So there are \(16×16×16×16×16×16≈16,000,000\) colors.
