1. ## Bases

Hey guys,could you please help me find the bases for the eigenspace of A=[(0 0 -2
1 2 1
1 0 3)][/tex] thank you..

2. Sure- what help do you need?

You forgot the leading [ MATH ] for you Latex- but then you didn't use LaTex code, anyway. Click on $\begin{bmatrix}0 & 0 & -2 \\ 1 & 2 & 1 \\ 1 & 0 & 3\end{bmatrix}$ to see the code.

Now, to find the bases for the eigenspace the first thing you need to do is find the eigenvalues:
can you solve the equation $\left|\begin{array}{ccc}-\lambda & 0 & -2 \\1 & 2- \lambda & 1 \\1 & 0 & 3- \lambda\end{array}\right|= 0$? That reduces to solving a cubic equation. I recommend expanding the determinant on the first row.
