HEX to RGB

You may be wondering how to convert a color code expressed in a Hexadecimal (Hex) format to a numeric RGB (Red, Green, Blue) value. With a little bit of math, we can easily perform those conversions. The Hex format is written as RRGGBB (hex triplet) where each place (total of 6) can hold values of 0-F. We then need to convert each set of two places to a Base10 (decimal) number. The number of colors that can be represented by this system is 256 × 256 × 256 (256 cubed) = 16,777,216.

RGB to HEX

Converting from RGB to HEX is just as simple. RGB values should be in the range of 0 through 255. Therefore, all that we need to do is convert R, G, B to Hex strings, and then concatenate the three hex strings together.
