name all the conditions for the coplanarity of three vectors and four vectors,similarly for the collinearity of three vectors and four vectors???

Expert Answers

An illustration of the letter 'A' in a speech bubbles

3 vectors of RR^3  are coplanar iff their deteminant is 0

3 vectors `vecA, vecB, vecC` are coplanar iff there exists a triplet `(a,b,c)ne(0,0,0)` such that  `avecA+bvecB+cvecC=vec0`

4 vectors are coplanar iff the determinant of any 3 of the vectors is 0.

4 vectors`` are coplanar iff any 3 of the vectors are coplanar

iff any 3 of the vectors, written  `vecA,vecB,vecC` there exists (a,b,c)ne(0,0,0) such that `avecA+bvecB+cvecC=0`



3 or 4 vectors are collinear iff any 2 of the vectors `vecA,` `vecB` satisfy: there exist `(a,b)ne(0,0)` such that `avecA+bvecB=vec0 ` .
