Magenta is required to go with black, cyan and yellow for
the folks who want to complete the subtractive (printing)
primary colors. As far as I know, this is for educators,
though someone or some few may have (a) game kernel(s)
waiting for magenta out there.

The fifth color I prefer is a translucent tan (sand) for
eco treehouse.

I would be surprised if there is another set after Eco/Loco
is released. That seems to lead to the "too many SKUs" that
killed the monochrome stashes.

All numbers are equal.

Choose arbitrary a and b, and let t = a + b.
(a + b)(a - b) = t(a - b)
a^2 - b^2 = ta - tb
a^2 - ta = b^2 - tb
a^2 - ta + (t^2)/4 = b^2 - tb + (t^2)/4
(a - t/2)^2 = (b - t/2)^2
a - t/2 = b - t/2
a = b
