Use the trace and determinant to compute eigenvalues.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I know how to do this with a 2x2 but not sure how to do it with a matrix of nxn where n>2.

[tex]\begin{bmatrix}

\frac{1}{2} & \frac{1}{3} & \frac{1}{5}\\

\frac{1}{4} & \frac{1}{3} & \frac{2}{5}\\

\frac{1}{4} & \frac{1}{3} & \frac{2}{5}

\end{bmatrix}[/tex] the det=0 and the trace=[tex]\frac{37}{30}[/tex]
