What are collinear points?


Collinear points are points that lie in a straight line. The term can refer to any number of points, although two points always form a straight line and are therefore always considered collinear.

Collinear points are most frequently referred to in Euclidean geometry, algebra, number theory and statistics. Their practical usage extends to antenna arrays and calculations used in photography. Collinear points can be graphed in both two- and three-dimensional plane geometry. The term collinear points can also describe shapes that line up together on a straight line. Common euphemisms for describing collinear points include "in a line" or "in a row."

because coplanar is coplanar and collinear is collinear!
Collinear Point is A set of points that lie in
Right. Well, first off Collinear points are indeed on the same line. That is, given the function f(x)x+1 then the points (1,2) (2,3) (3, 4) are all Collinear. Coplanar means that
