Hey, how do I determine whether or not points lie in a straight line? Is there a symbolic approach to determining so? Or do I need to spatially visualize it?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

For instance,

A(0,-5,5), B(1,-2,4), C(3,4,2) does lie in a straight line according to my book. Thanks!
