Let A = [3,2,6
0,1,6
0,0,3]
Find an invertible matrix P and a diagonal matrix D such that D = P^{1}AP.
find P and D
I worked out the polynomial 7x^37x^215x9 to give x= 1,3,3
My answer for P= [1,0,0
1,3,3
0,1,1]
and D= 1,0,0
0,3,0
0,0,3
something's wrong!

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1I think you get something wrong at P, since eigenvalue 3 has 2 dimensions and they are not yours! recheck

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2you should get D=dia(3,1,3)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1yes, surely, because they are eigenvalues of A, what I need is checking the order this guy arrange in P to have corresponding of numbers, like (3,1,3) or (1,3,3)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1We cannot guess, right, kid? if we mess the order up, although we know it is the Diagonal matrix of A but the P is in different order of eigenvectors, We will be crazy when checking what wrong is, I had that experience. It made me crazy

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2tr(A)=313=7 A11+A22+A33=3+9+3=15 A=3(3)=9 so, the characteristic polynomial would be\[\Delta(t)=t^3+7t^2+15t+9\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2well, as long as the eigen vector columns are arranged in proper order, you should be good.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2eigen vectors=? for t=1: \[2x+2y+6z=0\\6z=0\\3z=0\implies v_1=(1,1,0)^T\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2for t= 3: \[ 2y+6z=0\\ 2y+6z=0\\ v_{2,3}=(\alpha,3\beta,\beta)^T \]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2you can use v2 when a=0,b=1 v3 when a=1,b=1

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2or v3 when a=1,b=0 ANY combination of alpha and beta that do not give the same vectors..
