Hey guys,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

This is just a quick question.. I have a question on my linear algebra assignment that I dont understand..

What does it mean when you're given a 2x2 matrix M and told to "find formulas for the entries of M to the power of n, where n is a positive integer"

The assignment is about eigenvalues and eigenvectors, maybe that'll help..

Please explain to me what the question wants..

Thx,

Xeno
