1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data I'm practicing for my finals this coming week and I'm confused about these 2 problems. 2. Relevant equations 3. The attempt at a solution For e). I followed my notes and came up with D=U-1AU..since its asking for some basis to standard basis. And once computed, its the diagonal matrix. D= [-2 0 0] [0 3 0] [0 0 1] So am I doing it right? For part F). I dont know if its exactly the same method as above or do I need to get S=U-1V then B=SAS-1 I'm confused with all this!
