Asked in Colors
What color is formed when yellow and magenta are mixed together?
If you have a blue light showing through a cyan filter what color will it appear?
Shining a blue light through a cyan filter will result in a blue light shining through. As cyan is a combination of blue and green light, it will allow blue and green light to pass through it. Red light will be absorbed by the filter. This is proven by shining a violet or magenta light through the filter and it allowing blue light will shine through. It is shown as well by shining a yellow light through the filter which will result in green light shining through as both violet and yellow are a combination of red the other two primary colours, blue and green.
What color do you see looking through a yellow filter at a blue light?
The reason the filter appears yellow and is called a "yellow filter" is that only yellow light survives the trip through the filter and lives to emerge from the other side. If you don't hit it with yellow light, nothing comes out. If the light hitting the filter is pure blue and nothing else, you'll see no light come out, i.e. black.
Asked in Colors
What color do red light and green light form?
Brown. Here's why. Green is a combination of yellow and cyan (aka blue). Red is close to magenta; it is magenta with a little yellow mixed in. Thus green + red is a combination of all three primary colors: magenta, yellow and cyan. The combination would thus lead to a brownish color, since browns are what you tend to get when you mix all three primary colors. Short primer. Magenta, yellow and cyan (blue) are primary colors. Orange is an equal mix of magenta and yellow. Green is an equal mix of yellow and cyan. Red is a mix of orange and magenta.

What is the secondary triad in art?
What they've always taught in school was: the primary triad is red, blue and yellow the secondary triad is orange (red plus yellow), purple (red plus blue) and green (blue plus yellow). In reality, the primary colors are NOT red, blue and yellow. They are cyan, magenta and yellow. If you use these colors as your primaries, the secondary triad is red (magenta plus yellow), green (cyan plus yellow) and blue (cyan plus magenta). Red, green and blue are also the primary colors of light, which gives further credence to the fact cyan, magenta and yellow are the primaries--cyan absorbs red light, magenta absorbs green light and yellow absorbs blue light. And finally, I can almost guarantee your printer (assuming it's color) does NOT have red or blue ink in it, but it does have cyan and magenta ink.
Does The Color Wheel Exist?
Yes, it does. But it's often done the wrong way: with red, yellow, and blue as the primary colors and orange, green, and purple as the secondary ones. In reality, the primary pigments are yellow, cyan, and magenta and red, green, and blue as the secondary colors. Magenta + Yellow = Red Yellow + Cyan = Green Cyan + Magenta = Blue
