Logan, as William just wrote before the hexadecimal of black looks like #000, I would like to add only that it is a shorthand of this color. In Adobe Photoshop and the same apps you'll find black color presented as #000000. But in all the situations you see the pairs of same letters or numbers going one after another which duplicate you can use this short form. For example, orange color has three similar pairs #ff6600. That's why you may use #f60 for orange and so on.
