Can two points determine a plane?

No, 2 points define a line, 3 points define a plane.


Do two points determine a plane?

No. Three points do. Two points determine a line.


Two points determine a?

line.


How many points are needed to determine a unique line?

Two distinct (different) points are needed to determine a line.


Do a line and a point outside the line determine a plane?

Yes since 3 non-collinear points determine a plane. Of course one can take any two of the three points and draw a line between them. There are an infinite number of planes going through this line. Now pick on more point, not on the line, and those three points uniquely determine a plane.


What is the minimum number of points needed to identify a line?

Two. Two points determine a line. Three points determine a plane.


What is Three points determine a plane?

If you were to have 3 points on the same line, then you would actually not be determining a plane, because there are infinitely many planes that can intersect a given line. But if you have 3 points in the form of the points (or vertices) of a triangle, then you determine a plane in the sense that there is only one possible plane upon which that triangle can be drawn (not including a degenerate triangle, which is equivalent to a line).


What are points on a line for geometry?

In coordinated geometry the points on a straight line will determine its equation.

A line contains an infinite number of points but it takes only two points to determine a line.


What is the minimum requirement needed to determine a unique plane?

3 points which do not all lie on the same line.


How do you determine if 2 points are collinear?

2 points determine a straight line and are always, by definition, collinear.
