The problem is as follows:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Find a nonzero 2x2 matrix A such that Axis parallel to the vector

[1]

[2]

for allxin R^{2}.

So far I know A=[v1 v2]therefore Ax=[v1 v2][x_{1}]

[x_{2}]

=x_{1}v_{1}+x_{2}v_{2}

I know these two vectors are parallel, but I am a little stuck how to relate this property to solve for the matrix A.
