so the line has slope . Now consider the distance from a point on the line have the vector coordinates

( ) Therefore! the vector (" ) is parallel to the line! and the vector (# ) is perpendicular to it. Now! a vector from the point to the line is given by ($ ) Pro%ecting onto ! (&) (') (() ())

Point-Line Distance--3-Dimensional

Collinear

Three or more points ! ! ! ...! are said to be collinear if they lie on a single straight line . - line on which points lie! especially if it is related to a geometric figure such as a triangle! is sometimes called an a/is. Two points are trivially collinear since two points determine a line. Three points for ! ! " are collinear iff the ratios of distances satisfy (1 ) - slightly more tractable condition is obtained by noting that the area of a triangle determined by three points will be .ero iff they are collinear (including the degenerate cases of two or all three points being concurrent)! i.e.! ( ) or! in e/panded form! (" ) This can also be written in vector form as (# ) where is the sum of components! ! and .

The condition for three points ! ! and to be collinear can also be e/pressed as the statement that the distance between any one point and the line determined by the other two is .ero. +n three dimensions! this means setting in the point-line distance ($ ) giving simply
