Textbook Problem

Determine whether the points - 6 ,   5 , 1 ,   7 , and 16 ,   10 are collinear.

To determine

To check:

Whether the points A-6, 5, B1, 7, and C16, 10 are collinear.

Explanation

If the points are collinear, then the slope of the lines making with the points are same.

The slope of the line that contains the points x1,y1 and x2,y2 is given by

m=y2-y1x2-x1 for x2x1

Let the given points be A-6, 5, B1, 7, and C16, 10.

Let mAB- and mBC- are the slopes of the line AB- and BC- respectively.

The slope of the line AB- with A-6, 5, and B1, 7 can be obtained as follows.

Using the slope formula and choosing x1=-6, x2=1, y1=5, and y2=7
