Now that you have started to see how the computer creates different colors from the primary colors of light—red, green, and blue—try to translate the colors from the computer’s point of view.
Your are given a set of intensity values for several “mystery” colors. Using what you learned from the Naming Color Investigation, predict what color is produced by these color intensity values.
After you have written your guess in the chart, enter the intensities into the Make Colors section of ColorBasics software and write the color you see in the column on the right. Use the last few lines of the chart to try some colors of your own design.
