Let the first point be A, second B, and so on... Find vector AB, vector AC, Vector AD. If three lines are coplanar, then the scalar triple product of these 3 lines must be 0. [ AB . AC. AD]=0 Solve the determinant to get the value of (lambda) Sorry, I'm new here I don't know how to make symbols and signs so couldn't elaborate much.
