###### Asked in Math and Arithmetic

### What is the greatest number of planes that can pass through three collinear points?

The points are collinear, and there is an infinite number of
planes that contain a given line. A plane containing the line can
be rotated about the line by any number of degrees to form an
unlimited number of other planes.
If, on the other hand, the points are not collinear, then
the plane has no wriggle room: it is stuck fast in one place -
there can be only one plane containing all the points. Provided
they are non-colinear, three points...

### How many non-collinear points are there in one plane?

There are an infinite number of any kind of points in any plane.
But once you have three ( 3 ) non-collinear points, you know
exactly which plane they're in, because
there's no other plane that contains the same three
non-collinear points.

###### Asked in Geometry

### How many planes can be determined if the point noncollinear?

The answer depends on the number of point. One point - as the
question states - cannot be non-collinear. Any two points are
always collinear. But three or more points will define a plane. If
four points are non-coplanar, they will define four planes (as in a
tetrahedron).

###### Asked in Math and Arithmetic, Geometry

### What would happen if three collinear points are used to define a plane?

Three collinear points don't define a plane.
"Define" means narrow it down to one and only one unique plane,
so that it can't be confused with any other one.
There are many different planes (actually infinite) that can
contain three collinear points, so no unique plane is defined.

### If four points are collinear they are also coplaner?

I dont think that "If four points are collinear they are also
coplaner," is the same thing as "If four points are coplaner they
are also collinear,". The definition of collinear is at least three
points on the same line. To define a plane is to have three
noncollinear points.

### What are collinear points?

Collinear points are points that lie on the same line.
Noncollinear points do not lie on the same line. Any two points are
always collinear, i.e. forming a line. Three or more points can be
collinear along a single line.
Collinear points lies on the same straight line.

###### Asked in Math and Arithmetic, Algebra, Geometry

### How many lines contain n points with no 3 points collinear?

None. In ordinary geometry, a line contains an infinite number
of points and, by definition, they are all collinear.
In projective geometry, however, you can have three lines in the
form of a triangle. Each line has only two points on it, so it
cannot have 3 points collinear.

### What is the definition of non collinear lines?

The definition of a non-collinear line is that this is a line on
which points do not lie on one line. The opposite of this is a
