Find the Jordan Normal Form of

3,0,8

3,-1,6

-2,0,-5

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution

I got the eigen values as lambda=-1

found 2 eigen vectors:

-2

0

1

and

0

1

0

now when i try and do (A+I)^2 I get a zero matrix so cannot seem to find the last column of the P matrix to then calculate P-1AP=J
