2. rgb() function - Decimal notation

If we set the same values for red, green and blue, it represents gray type color. For example, rgb(200,200,200).

3. #RRGGBB - Hexadecimal notation

The hexadecimal notation of the rgb value consists of '#' character, followed by some number of digits (0-9) or letters (a-f). There might be 6 or 8 digits or letters.

six digits

The three pairs of digits or letters represent red, green and blue colors. For example, #ff0000 is value for red color.

eight digits

There might be eight digits or letters instead of six digits. The fourth pair of digits or letter represents opacity of the object. For example, #ffff0000 is value for yellow color with opacity 0.
