Eigenvectors for a matrix

  1. Mar 28, 2014 #1

    Hey everyone.
    I have a matrix A = {{7,-5,0},{-5,7,0},{0,0,-6}}
    I have found the Eigenvalues, 2,12,-6 but I'm only getting one Eigenvector, (0,0,1)..
    I know there is 2 others (-1,1,0) and (1,1,0) but I am unable to get them by hand.
    Once I get the matrix in the form (A-λI)*v = o, I just get the one vector..
    Any help is much appreciated.
