Unformatted text preview: Solutions to problems from section 5.2 2. Find the characteristic polynomial and the eigenvalues of the matrix A = bracketleftbigg 5 3 3 5 bracketrightbigg . Solution: χ A ( λ ) = det bracketleftbigg 5- λ 3 3 5- λ bracketrightbigg = (5- λ ) 2- 9 = λ 2- 10 λ + 16 = ( λ- 8)( λ- 2) . Therefore the eigenvalues of A are 8 and 2 (both with multiplicity one). 10. Find the characteristic polynomial of the matrix A = 0 3 1 3 0 2 1 2 0 .
