## Homework Statement

Hi all.

I have no clue on how to do this problem because I missed the class where he covered this so could someone please walk me through it.

A = [2 2 -5; 2 7 2; -5 -15 -4] where ; means new column

p(x) = (x-3)(x-1)^2

1) what are the choices of m(x)

2) find the minimum polynomial

3) find the jordan canonical form

d) find P s.t. P^(-1)AP

## Homework Equations

## The Attempt at a Solution

1)m(x) = (x-3)(x-1)^2

and m(x) = (x-3)(x-1)

2) no clue.. m(x) = (x-3)(x-1)?

do i have to plug in A for x or something?

3) no clue

4) no clue

I'm really sorry for this half a**ed attempt but I really do not have any material on this stuff. I tried researching the minimum polynomial problem but none of the examples are similar to mine. I just need a push in the right direction please

Thanks!
