(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

A= [1 -1 0]

[-1 2 -1]

[0 -1 1]

find orthogonal matrix P and diagonal matrix D such that P' A P = D

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution

i got eigenvalues are 0, 1, 3 which make D=[0 0 0; 0 1 0; 0 0 3]

how to find P. because in my solution they mentioned about normalised eigenvectors.
