Description 



Collinear: Points are collinear if they lie on the same straight line. 
In the
picture below, collinear points are
 Points A, D, and C (blue line)
 Points A and B (black line)
 Points B and D (red line)
 Points B and C (green line)
In addition, points that are collinear must satisfy the same linear equation. So without even looking at a graph, if we are given the linear equation y = 4x  2, we know that the points (2,6) and (0,2) are collinear because 6 = 4*2  2 and 2 = 4*0  2.
