Step two:

Convert each hex number into its decimal equivalent.

Now that you have the components separated, you can compute the value for

each from 0 to 255. Let's start with the hex number for the red component:

CC

12

Now take t
he leftmost

number and
convert it to

its decimal
value, and also

multiply it
by 16.

12 * 16 = 192

192 + 12 = 204

Step three:

Now do this for the other two values.

Repeat the same method on the other two values. Here's what you should get:

To calculate 66, you have

(6 * 16) + 6 = 102.

66

00

CC

To calculate 00, you have

(0 * 16) + 0 = 0.

102

0

204

Step four:

There is no step four; you're done!

That's it. Now you've got the numbers for each component and you know

exactly how much red, green, and blue go into the color. You can disassemble

any hex color in exactly the same way. Now let's see how you'll usually

determine web colors.
