(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); Find a 2\times 2 matrix A for which

E_4 = span [1,-1] and E_2 = span [-5, 6]

where E_(lambda) is the eigenspace associated with the eigenvalue (lambda)

relevant equations: Av=(lambda)v

3. The attempt at a solution

I've pretty much gotten most of the eigenspace/value problems down, but this one I'm clueless on how to work. Seems that you would have to work backwards , but I don't know how to do that.
