Solution: The corresponding symmetric matrix is bracketleftbigg 9 2 2 6 bracketrightbigg . We find that the characteristic polynomial is C ( ) = vextendsingle vextendsingle vextendsingle vextendsingle 9 2 2 6 vextendsingle vextendsingle vextendsingle vextendsingle = 2 15 + 50 = (  10)(  5) . So, we have eigenvalues 1 = 10 and 2 = 5. For 1 = 10 we get A 1 I = bracketleftbigg 1 2 2 4 bracketrightbigg bracketleftbigg 1 2 bracketrightbigg . Thus, a corresponding eigenvector is vectorv 1 = bracketleftbigg 2 1 bracketrightbigg . For 2 = 5 we get A 2 I = bracketleftbigg 4 2 2 1 bracketrightbigg bracketleftbigg 2 1 0 0 bracketrightbigg . Thus, a corresponding eigenvector is vectorv 2 = bracketleftbigg 1 2 bracketrightbigg . Thus, we have the ellipse 10 x 2 1 + 5 x 2 2 = 21 with principal axis vectorv 1 for x 1 and vectorv 2 for y 1 . Graphing gives: 2 2. Find a singular value decomposition of 1 4 2 2 2 4 .....
