How do I decide if a point is within the triangle

  1. Feb 5, 2007 #1
    Hi all:
    Give three point P1, P2, P3 in R^3. How do I decide if a point P is inside of the triangle P1P2P3 please?

    P1, P2, and P3, provided that they aren't colinear, determine a plane. So the first condition is that P lies in that plane. Then it becomes a problem in R^2.
