css - Finding "equivalent" color with opacity - Stack Overflow
Color blending is just a linear interpolation per channel, right? So the math is pretty simple. If you have RGBA1 over RGB2, the effective visual result RGB3 will be:

r3 = r2 + (r1-r2)*a1
g3 = g2 + (g1-g2)*a1
b3 = b2 + (b1-b2)*a1
…where the alpha channel is from 0.0 to 1.0.

Sanity check: if the alpha is 0, is RGB3 the same as RGB2? Yes. If the alpha is 1, is RGB3 the same as RGB1? Yes.

sketch app - How to calculate the RGB color values with a given alpha value for mixing with another color to achieve a target color? - Graphic Design Stack Exchange
0

Calculate separately for r, g and b (decimal 0....255) the following formula

X=(T-(1-A)*B)/A

X=the new rgb number, T=target rgb number, B=background rgb number, A=alpha (0...1, 0=fully transparent)

If you get negative number or greater than 255, the goal was impossible.
