    [7*lambda-8+(lambda-5)*(lambda(lambda)-1)] seems to be the answer, accordng to my book in the first question it gave the "characteristic polynomial" as the answer... So I wanted to do the same here.

    I assume you know to subtract lambda from the diagonals, then find the determinant of that matrix?

    MY book just shows for a 2x2 matrix that it's lambda - # on the main diagonal, and everything else is negated.

    so I took the determinant for the 3x3, but my book wants the characteristic EQ, which is what I posted above, but the answer in the b ook showed the polynomial characteristic which was lambda^3 etc etc and then sifted out....

    \[A=\left[\begin{matrix}5&0&1\\1&1&0\\-7&1&0\end{matrix}\right]\]\[(\lambda I-A)=0=\left|\begin{matrix}\lambda-5&0&-1\\-1&\lambda-1&0\\7&-1&\lambda\end{matrix}\right|\]take the determinant and what do you get?

    and why do you only do it twice? I'm so confused. I thought the diagonal rule is 3 diags - 3 diags.

    I hate co factors... From TT's example I get [-7*lambda(-1)+1+(lambda(lambda-1))(lambda)] = 0
