Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1If \(D\) is the diagonalization of \(A\), then we can write:\[A=PDP^{1}\]where:\[P=\left[\begin{matrix}e_1 & e_2 & e_3\end{matrix}\right]\]and \(e_i\) represents the i'th eigenvector of \(A\). You first need to find the eigenvalues of A using:\[\leftA\lambda I\right=0\]solving this should give you the three eigenvalues of \(A\), \(\lambda_1, \lambda_2, \lambda_3\). Then use each of the eigenvalues to solve:\[(A\lambda I)x=0\]this should give you the three eigenvectors \(e_1, e_2, e_3\). Hence you have found \(P\). Ti find \(A^{30}\) you can use the property:\[A^n=(PDP^{1})^n=PDP^{1}*PDP^{1}*PDP^{1}*...\]and note that on either side of the internal multiplications you have \(P^{1}*P=I\) and therefore these collapse to give:\[A^n=PD^nP^{1}\]and calculating \(D^n\) for the diagonal matrix \(D\) is trivial.
