I'm confused as to how to approach this question without A being given. I thought perhaps I could use the characteristic equation in some way although I am still unsure. I think I could start with using λ=1. Would my matrix then be [ 1 0 0; 0 1 0; 0 0 1] then I would do [1^25 0 0; 0 1^25 0; 0 0 1^25], and finally I would arrive at my answer which would be A^25= [ 1 0 0; 0 1 0; 0 0 1]?

Thank you.
