A 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.

At 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."

Check out the axioms of incidence at http://userpages.umbc.edu/~rcampbel/Math306/Axioms/Hilbert.html Also, they should be written in your Geometry text.
