    Hey anyone heard of this equation:
    x=t-i?
    (means answer= total-input)
    i call it the inverting equation...
    if you've ever been in paint and seen the "invert colo(u)r [ctrl+i] you can use this simple equation. say you have an RGB value (100,32,91).
    The total for any rgb number is 255, so lets replace the letters with numbers...
    (r value) x=t-i
    x=255-100
    x=155
    and repeat for green and blue values.
    (g value) x=t-i
    x=255-32
    x=223
    (b value) x=t-i
    x=255-91
    x=164
    Ta-da! the inverted state of ink rgb(100,32,91) is (155,223,164)!
    Try it for yourself.

    ps. this also works for angles.

    How amazing!

    Max - value = remainder

    I never would have come up with that.

    Do I smell a tiny sniff of sarcasm here?
