freeCodeCamp Challenge Guide: Use Hex Code to Mix Colors

Use Hex Code to Mix Colors


Hints

Hint 1

In order to change the color of a class within the style element, we simply replace the color itself with the hexcode shown below.

Before

<style>
  .ClassName {
    color: black;
}
</style>

After

<style>
  .ClassName {
    color: #FFFFFF; /*this represents the hex code of the colour, white*/
}
</style>

Note: In the class,.ClassName, within the <style> element, the color has changed from a color of black into the hexcode, #FFFFFF, which shows that the color of the class .ClassName has changed from black to white in the <style> element.


Solutions

Solution 1 (Click to Show/Hide)

From the Problem above, we need to change black from the color element in the <style> element, into the given hex codes from the table based on the colour that the class needs. For example, the class .red-text clearly needs their color element to be changed from black into a red colour, where the table gives us the hex code of #FF0000 for the colour red, which is shown below.

Before changing color of class .red-text

<style>
  .red-text {
    color: black;
}
</style>

After changing color of class .red-text

<style>
.red-text {
  color: #FF0000; /* Color has changed into red when we used this hex code from the table*/
}
</style>

Final Solution
After changing color of other classes, the final solution reveals that we have changed the color element of these text classes with hex codes shown below:

<style>
  .red-text {
    color: #FF0000;
  }
  .green-text {
    color: #00FF00;
  }
  .dodger-blue-text {
    color: #1E90FF;
  }
  .orange-text {
    color: #FFA500;
  }
</style>
