(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

Obtain the eigenvalues and corrosponding eigenvectors for the matrix: [2,2,1;1,3,1;1,2,2]

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution

I can solve for the eigenvalues, 5, 1, and 1

I can solve the eigenvalue 5 for the eigenvector B[1;1;1]

Yet somehow, the 1 eigenvalues are supposed to give me two different eigenvectors. Unfortunately, this makes no sense to me, which is why i'm here...

Can someone please explain to me how to finish solving this question?
