Monitors and elecronics use RGB (Red, Green and Blue) to form the images, it does not mean that those are primary colors. Lately a TV manufacturer is adding yeelow to that so becoming RGBY.
In painting and graphic arts, primary colors (Meaning those that can not be made by combining other colors) are red, yellow and blue. Green is made with yellow and blue, orange with yellow and red, purple with blue and red, brown with red, yellow and blue and so on.

Did I write what I wrote? What the heck am I talking about! Well..... Nevermind.
