Find the eigenvalues and corresponding eigenvector of the matrix.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

A=

[-4 4 8 ]

[0 0 -10]

[0 0 2 ]

[1 -1 0]

~ [0 0 1 ]

[0 0 0 ]

I calculated by A = -[itex]\lambda[/itex]I

So,

[1-lamda -1 0 ]

[0 -lamda 1]

[0 0 -lamda]

so, lamda = 0,0, and 1

So I got

1st eigen value: 0 eigen vector (1,1,0)

2nd eigen value: 0 eigen vector (1,1,0)

3rd eigen value: 1 eigen vector (1,0,0)

1st and 2nd values were right, but third one was wrong.

I tried several times, and I always get 1(1,0,0)

What do i need to do ?

thanks
