Hi, an intermediate user here. Numbers in color statement mean the amount of rgb (red, green and blue) that compose the color. POV has a way to ease this.
Use and as basic include headers. You can open in the editor and take a look. Many colors are "declared" there, so you can use for example

background {Black} or pigment { Red} which is more intuitive and easy to work with.

Hope this helps
