# Pastel Colours 1

=== by Bob Sutherland ===

This is an attempt to find light pastel colours that can be used as background colours behind text on a web page. The following RGB colour codes include all possible combinations of the hexadecimal numbers FF EE DD CC BB AA 99.

The three digits in square brackets at the end of each title provide a hint as to the RGB hexadecimal number sequence in that chart.

## Three RGB values are equal

 #ffffff - white #eeeeee - colour #dddddd - colour #cccccc - colour #bbbbbb - colour #aaaaaa - colour #999999 - colour

## Two RGB values are the same

Six distinct coloured triangles can be made from the colours in this section.

## Three RGB values are different

Six distinct cascading triangles can be made from the colours in this section.

Each cascading triangle is displayed twice (a & b) with the colours arranged in different patterns.

If you are an abstract thinker then the cascading triangles actually form a three dimensional pyramid by stacking the triangles one above the other from largest (5x5x5) on the bottom to smallest (1x1x1) at the top.
