For a given matrix True False 4. Which of the following conditions necessarily imply that a n n real matrix A is diagonalizable (i.e., is similar to a diagonal matrix)? A hasndistinct eigenvalues.TRUE A has only real eigenvalues.FALSE: needs to be distinct A is nonsingular.FALSE: eigenvectors might not be linearly independent A is equal to its transpose.TRUE A commutes with its transpose.TRUE: makes it Normal matrix Problem 2 Is there any real value for the parameter such that the matrix A = 1 4 2 6 5 3 , 1. Has all real eigenvalues? 2. Has all complex eigenvalues with nonzero imaginary parts? In each case, either give such a value for or give a reason why none exists....
