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

3. The attempt at a solution

on P1), they only ask for the coefficient matrix, which I think is the following one:

1 -6 2

0 1 4

0 0 15/8

on P2), they ask for the orthogonal matrix P used for the transformation. I suppose I have to apply Gram-Schmidt of the coefficient matrix from P1) to get P, but I am not sure of it...

Could someone guide me to solve this problem ?

Thanks in advance
