So, I have the matrix:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

A = -1 -3

3 9

Eigenvalues i calculated to be λ = 8 and 0

Now when i calculate the Eigenvector for λ = 8, i get the answer -1

3

Then when solve for the eigenvector for λ= 0 I get the eigenvector 3

-1

Both incorrect, they're supposed to have the signs the opposite way round. I don't understand how I am getting it wrong.

This is how i am attemption to solve it.

Any pointers would be appreciated.
