If you're identifying color for pretty much anything digital, you're working in an RGB colorspace. If the project you're working on requires percentage representation, mauve is made of 88% red, 69% green, and 100% blue.
If you're identifying color for a print project, you're most likely using a CMYK colorspace—the percentages are 12% cyan, 31% magenta, 0% yellow, 0% black.
