Since we can also get black by combining cyan, magenta, and yellow, does that mean that there are multiple representations for the same color in CMYK? If so, how does one choose which representation to use?


I've seen RGB used plenty, but I haven't ever really heard/seen CMYK. What are the pros and cons of using CYMK in comparison to just using RGB?


Is this the foundation for the "additive" and "subtractive" filters you common see on photo editing software such as Photoshop?


Since combining paint colors is given as the example for the subtractive model, when modeling something like realistic paint combinations, is there a straightforward way that the combined color would be chosen? (e.g. combining cyan and magenta paint in real life would be some shade of purple and not blue)


Is there an effective way to translate between addition and subtraction? So instead of separating these two functionalities, is there a way to implement subtraction using addition?


Why do adding colors and subtracting colors work in this way? Does this change with how we represent colors (e.g. using line/angle representation)
