The solution is attached below in two files. the files are identical in content, only differ in format. The first is in MS Word format, while the other is in Adobe pdf format. Therefore you can choose the format that is most suitable to you.

To find eigenvalues:
Calculate the characteristic polynomial
Find the roots of the equation
These are the eigenvalues
To find the eigenvectors, for each eigenvalue solve the system of equations
Note that for any constant and eigenvector v, the vector is an eigenvector as well with the same eigenvalue:

Case 1:


Equating it to zero we find two roots:

To find the eigenvectors we ...
