For mixing paint I think you have to take the average of the colors:
((100,200,150) + (50,60,70)) / 2 = (75, 130, 110)
BTW: mixing paint is NOT the same as mixing light like 255,0,0 (red) + 0,255,0 (green) + 0,0,255 (blue) = 255,255,255 (white)
try it yourself: take the 3 colors paint (red green blue) and paint 3 parts of a circle each with a different color, then spin the circle (using a pencil)
take the same colors and mix then with same amounts, you won't get the same color as with spinning the circle.
Each number system has exactly 10 different digits.

Thanks, but I don't think its that simple.
Eg Green = (0,255,0) and Magenta = (255,0,255)
So they are opposite corners of the colour cube.
But when you average them out you get (127,127,127) which is a medium gray.
I might be wrong, but mixing green and magenta paint, I would not expect it to come out gray.
Results obtained when mixing additive colors are often counterintuitive for people accustomed to the more everyday subtractive color system of pigments, dyes, inks and other substances which present color to the eye by reflection rather than emission.
