    Let B = . Find each of the following. You may use a calculator to replace hand calculation for row reduction and finding the characteristic polynomial. Show your work; don't just write down the answers.

    (a) Find the characteristic polynomial of "A".
    (b) Find the eigenvalues of "A"; for each, find the algebraic multiplicity.
    (c) Find a basis for each eigenspace.
    (d) Diagonalize "A" ; that is, find: S , Λ , and, S-1 such that A = S Λ S-1 .
