## The Attempt at a Solution

so i tried doing the problem i going to use L for lambda

i got the matrix

[1-L, 3]

[K , 4-L]

then i do determinant to get the characteristic polynomial

(1-L)(4-L)-3K=0

L^2-5L+4=3k

K=(L^2-5L+4)/(3)

the other way i did it but I am not sure is [(L^2-5L+4)/(K)] -3

i also tried doing this in MATLAB by doing

k=-100:100

a=[1 3; k 4;]

but that i think would just put a bunch of numbers where k is i think

not really sure how to proceed from here
