# Show that the Following Points Are Collinear: A(-5,1), B(5, 5) and C(10, 7) - Mathematics

Show that the following points are collinear:

A(-5,1), B(5, 5) and C(10, 7)

#### Solution

"Let " A(x_1=-5,y_1=1), B(x_2=5,y_2=5) and C(x_3= 10,y_3=7)be the given points.

 Now , x_1(y_2-y_3)+x_2(y_3-y_1)+x_3(y_1-y_2)

=(-5)(5-7)+5(7-1)+10(1-5)

=-5(-2)+5(6)+10(-4)

=10+30-40

= 0

Hence, the given points are collinear.
