I am painting with red, yellow, and blue paint. All three colors will form 3 circles. When I used the red, i drew a red circle (disc maybe more appropriate as the circles were filled in with their colors) likewise for yellow and blue. The red circle had a diameter of 10cm, while the yellow and blue had 8cm and 6cm respectively. The circles were arranged thus:

1. The blue circle's ring touches the center of yellow

2. The yellow circle's ring touches the center of red

3. The red circle's touches the center of blue.

For the sake of argument let's assume that red + blue + yellow = magenta. In terms of the painted area...

what percentage of the shape is magenta?

How many colors are represented in the painting?
