Geometry

Where would you place three distinct points using three parallel lines to ensure that the points were noncollinear.

Using three parallel lines (or less) show you have a line and a point not on that line.

Re: Geometry

Hello strangerrr,

A collinear means that there are three or more points on one line so if you think about it all you have to do is put two points on one line and one in the plane not on the line. The reason for this is because a line needs at least two points to be considered a line.
