Find a basis for the eigenspace corresponding to the listed eigenvalue. 3 2 1 3 1 1 1 4 , Î» = 4 Solution. We need to find a basis for null( A 4 I ) . For that purpose we carry out some row operations: A 4 I =  1 2 1 1 1 1 3 R 1 + R 2 + R 3 â†’ R 1â†’ 1 1 1 1 3 â†’ 1 1 1 1 3 . So we want to find vectors x = x 1 x 2 x 3 x 4 such that 1 1 1 1 3 x 1 x 2 x 3 x 4 = . The solution is given by x 1 x 2 x 3 x 4 = 2 3 1 s + 1 t, where s and t are free. Therefore a basis for the eigenspace corresponding to the eigenvalue 4 is 2 3 1 , 1 . #22. In the following exercise A is an n Ã— n matrix. Mark each statement True or False. Justify your answer. Solution. a. If A x = Î» x for some scalar Î», then x is an eigenvector of A. False. A zero vector satisfies the above property but it is not an eigenvector. b. If v 1 and v 2 are linearly independent eigenvectors, then they correspond to distinct eigenvalues....
