Learn how to prove that three points lie in a line (collinear) using vectors

Key Points

Collinear refers to points laying in a straight line

Collinearity can be shown using vectors or gradients

Using gradients we show the vectors are parallel and share a point

Vectors are parallel if one is a multiple of the other

Points can be collinear but there are no collinear vectors
