Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0A line contains at least 2 points. P is a point not on the given line. Therefore, points A and B on the line and point P not on the line are noncollinear. And, three noncollinear points determine a unique plane.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0At least three of the points would always be noncollinear. It doesn't matter how many more points are there. The question is about "a line and a point."
