    not really; linear means that they all are in a line; same slope means that they are at least parallel lines

    if A, B and C form a straight line; from point to point and have the same slope between points; then yes

    so by looking at the points can we roughly know isit collinear?

    roughly yes; but by sight is never a good solution for precise measurements :)

    some points can be quadratic and seem linear just becasue of the part of the curve they are on is to subtile to tell by sight
