coplanar is like anything that has a line, plane or point.collinear is like point that are on the same line.

Coplanar means on the same plane, while collinear means on the same line.

coplanar mean all the points lie on a plane or a flat 2-dimensional surface the points can be spread out but have to lie in the plane collinear means are the point lie in one straight lineif points are all collinear then they're also coplanar

Coplanar= Points, lines, etc in the same plane. Collinear= Points that share the same line.

Simple.Coplaner: Like the teacher said, Co = together, planer = plane. They are together in the same plane, whatever figure in one planeCollinear: Co = together, linear, sounds like line, right? Three points on the same line. That's collinear.Hope it helped.Have funCheers.

coplanar is the same thing: co means share and planar means plane so put it together and it has points on a shared plane
