It is a Geometry Theorem. "A line and a point not on the line lie in exactly one place" means what it says.

No, it does not.

A point is a coordinate on an axis. A line is the connection between two points. A plane is the object of perspective that points and lines lie on.

No they can be Collinear - Points that lie on the same line.

It is a Geometry Theorem. "A line and a point not on the line lie in exactly one place" means what it says.

True.

No. A line can lie in many planes. A plane can be defined by three non-linear points. Since a line is defined by only two points, we need another point. (Note that point C alone, or line AB alone belong to an infinite number of planes.)

No, it does not.

Yes.

A point is a coordinate on an axis. A line is the connection between two points. A plane is the object of perspective that points and lines lie on.

A straight line MUST lie in a plane. A curved line may or may not.

If you mean the point of (-1, 6) then it lies in the 2nd quadrant on the Cartesian plane

the same line

No they can be Collinear - Points that lie on the same line.
