If 3 points are collinear the solve for t (3,3) (t,1) (8,6)

Let A(3,3), B(t,1), C(8,6) be the three points.
If they are collinear, the slope of line AB would be the same as the slope of line BC.
The slope m of a line between two points is given by
m = (y2y1)/(x2x1)
Equate mAB and mBC in terms of t.
Solve for t.

This is an example in the text book. Using vectors, demonstrate that the three points A(5, 1), B(3,4) and C(13,6) are collinear. Solution AB = (8, 5) BC = (16, 10) Then BC = 2AB AB and BC have the opposite direction, so the points …
