    first off you'll have to prove that the points are aligned.

    \[\left[\begin{matrix}x_a & y_a & 1 \\ x_b & y_b & 1\\ x_c & y_c & 1\end{matrix}\right]=0\] That is the equation you can use to prove that three points are aligned.

    it seems like a (right) triangle.... not even a(n explicit) function. maybe there is a typo in these points (idk)

    I don't know really, too little information.

    there is no slope here. well, only between the slope (of the secant) between the last 2 points

    Well yes and no, if the three points are aligned, the slope that represents the first two, must also represent the third.
