Problem 4 – Hint 2

The second step towards the solution is understanding that the given three point images determine only the position of the intersection point F of a focal plane with the line s connecting the three given points: a lense with arbitrary orientation and arbitrary focal length does satisfy all the conditions of the problem as long as its focal plane intersects with the line s at the point F.
