    Points that are between each other are collinear (lie on the same line.) I can't draw the diagram for the problem so that the three points are collinear. To my thinking, no point lies between the other two according to the concept of betweenness in Geometry. |dw:1444021256834:dw|

    In 1D we can make R to lie between P and Q : |dw:1444022546746:dw|

    Oh in that situation, they intersect at point R without any other points in common. I think i get it now. Thanks!

    I did not consider that arrangement. Yikes. So, R lies between P and Q. @Andrew1253
