Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0hm...sorry i'm not sure...my linear algebra isn't very good...i think you are trying to prove that you can find powers of a matrix by first decomposing it into PDP^1 and then multiplying the diagonal matrix D by a power of N...but i'm not so sure what that N matrix needs to look like

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0thats all it says....maybe it jus asking how to start with M= PDP^1, then end up with M^n=PDN^nP^1. I have no clue but thats all the question is
