 P: 111 Since $$A$$ is diagonalizable, we can choose some invertible matrix $$S$$ such that $$A = S D S^{-1}$$, where $$D$$ is diagonal and the diagonal entries of $$D$$ are the eigenvalues of $$A$$. We can translate the assumption regarding the multiplicity of $$\lambda$$ into a statement about $$D$$, after which the result follows by using $$A = S D S^{-1}$$.
