You should know that two points determine a straight line. Drawing more points just wastes time.

yes, but any 2 points will make a straight line.  Best to have at least three points in case one of the original points is wrong.  For example, what if you made a mistake on one of the first two points.  They would still make a straight line.  The time to check is not a waste of time.
