Two points (which must lie on a line) and the third point NOT on that line.

line - ( apex )

Provided that you last touched the ground outside the three-point line, the shot should count as three points.

Collinear points are points that lie on the same line. Noncollinear points do not lie on the same line. Any two points are always collinear, i.e. forming a line. Three or more points can be collinear along a single line.Collinear points lies on the same straight line.

To find a point equidistant from three other points, construct perpendicular bisectors for two of the segments formed from three points. Note: this will be the center of the circle that has all three points on it's circumference. Three points, not in a straight line, form three pairs of points with each pair defining a different line. Take any pair of points and draw the perpendicular bisector of the line joining them. Repeat for one of the other pairs. These two perpendicular bisectors will meet at the point which is equidistant from all three points - the circumcenter of the triangle formed by the three points.

If three points all lie on the same line, then the points are said to be "collinear". This is also true if the slope from each point to the next is the same.

Well, I think you mean what is the three point line... well the three point line in basketball is a designated arc line radiating from the basket. If a player shoots beyond the three point line, it counts as three points while if you shoot inside the three point line, it only counts as two points.

Points on the same line are called collinear points.

You can score up to three points at the line. If you're fouled at the three-point line you go to the line for three. But if you're fouled at the three-point line and score while being fouled, they give you three points and you go to the line for one more making a "four-point play".

The three point line is a line around the perimeter that if you shoot out of it and make it, it counts as 3 points.

How many points is a basket made inside the three point line

Two points (which must lie on a line) and the third point NOT on that line.

Any shot within the three point line is two points, a shot made outside the three point line is worth three points, and a free throw is worth one point.

Plane

They don't give 3 points for a field goal. Basketball gives you three points when you make a basket at the three point line the three point line was added after the 1978/1979 season.

If its shot behind the three point line three inside the three point line is two.

that you can score three points in one shot
