    \[\left( A-\lambda I \right)x=0\]lamda is the eigenvalue, x is the eigenvector

    i was able to find the eigenvalue \[\left[\begin{matrix}-6 & 1 \\ -2 & -3\end{matrix}\right]\] to be \[\lambda _{1}=-4, \lambda _{2}=-5\] now what's the next step?

    @nightshade please don't post off-topic answers. @exraven and elica85 we want x to not be the zero vector also

    Did you try to plug into exraven's formula to find the eigenvectors

    i thought it's lambdaI-A, not A-lambdaI

    idk what i'm doing, my school doesn't require us to take linear algebra to take diff eq so i'm suppose to know what to do but i don't
