Unformatted text preview: April 2006 Mathematics 152 Page 2 of 9 pages Marks [12] 1. [Short answer] (a) [3] Let A = x- y y x and B = s- t t s . Is it true that AB = BA for all choices of x , y , s and t ? (b) [3] Write down a 2 × 2 matrix with real entries but with complex eigenvalues. (c) [3] For which values of a does 1 a 1 have only one eigenvector (up to scalar multiples)? (d) [3] If A = 1 1 1 what is A 100 ?
