1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
A simple eigenvector problem using a 2x2 matrix.

2. Relevant equations
$$Ax = \lambda x$$

3. The attempt at a solution
I don't have one. I know and understand the theory behind eigenvectors, but I cannot think of a practical application. I need to create a problem that uses eigenvalues/eigenvectors as a solution.
