Q. 10 B

Show that the following points are collinear :

A(3, -5, 1), B(-1, 0, 8) and C(7, -10, -6)

Answer :

To prove: the 3 points are collinear.


Formula:


The distance between two points (x1,y1,z1) and (x2,y2,z2) is given by


D=


Here,


(x1,y1,z1)= (3, -5, 1)


(x2,y2,z2)= (-1, 0, 8)


(x3,y3,z3)= (7, -10, -6)


Length AB =


=


=


=


= = 3


Length BC =


=


=


=


= = 6


Length AC =


=


=


=


= = 3


BA + BC = 3 + 3 =6 = BC


Therefore A, B, C are collinear.
