**Definition.** Let $P(V)$ be a projective space of dimension $n$. Then $n+2$ points in $P(V)$ are said to be *in general position* if no $n+1$ of them are contained in a $(n-1)$-dimensional projective subspace. In terms of linear algebra this implies that no $n+1$ representative vectors are linearly dependend, i.e. every $n+1$ are linearly independent.

**Examples.** If $n = 1$ we have to consider $n+2 = 3$ points on a projective line. These three points are in general position as long as they are disjoint.
