CSS CSS Basics (2014) Understanding Values and Units Color Values

What is the rgb of black and white? :(

I took the quiz, it asked what is pure white and black, I put FFF and 000, but I kept getting it wrong. I just gave up. I looked online and on the video, it says white is FFFFFF and black is 000000, can someone tell me what i was supposed to put then? It said rgb( ? , ? , ?) for white and rbg (?,?,?) for black.

THANK YOU. I kept putting F, that must be why I got it wrong. That was frustrating me a lot.

Zainub Baig. F is in the Hex value for white. So you may be confusing #FFFFFF or #FFF shorthand (white) with rgb(255,255,255); (also white) and #000 (Black) with rgb(0,0,0); (also Black). The two letters/number blocks in hex values correlate with RGB. So in the hex #169BCE, 16 is the amount of red, 9B is the amount of green, and CE is the amount of blue in the color.

The RGB values for black and white are rgb(0, 0, 0) and rgb(255, 255, 255), respectively. :)

Oops, 255

Did you use #? #fff and #000. Also, rgb(256,256,256) is white, rgb(0,0,0) is black
