7. Given a square matrix A, to solve for eigenvalues and eigenvectors
a) (A-lambdaI)x=0 is equivalent, so, since we are looking for nontrivial x solutions, that means that this homogeneous system must have infinite solutions, so we can solve for det(lambdaI- A)=0.
b) Once we have a lambda that works, we can take the inverse of (A-lambdaI) to solve for the eigenvectors
c) Once we have a lambda that works, we can create the augmented matrix [A-lamdbaI|0] and reduce to solve for solutions and write out a basis.
d) a and b
e) a and c
