    For the problem, refer to the linear transformation T: R^3 --> R^3 given by T(x) = T(x, y, z) = (2x + 2z, x - y + z, 2x + 2z).
    Write the change of basis matrix K from the basis F of R^3 which consists of the eigenvectors of T to the standard basis E for R^3.

    T(x, y, z) = (2x + 2z, x - y + z, 2x + 2z)

    T(1, 0, 0)= (2, 1, 2)
    T(0, 1, 0)= (0, -1, 0)
    T(0, 0, 1)= (2, 1, 2)

    Then the matrix is:

    [2 0 2]

    A= [1 -1 1]

    [2 0 2]

    We must find the eigenvalues of A and then find the eigenvectors of it:
    The eigenvalues are 4, -1, 0. Then we have:

    lambda=4 --->
