Well, before we can help you we would need to know what you did! Did you expand this by the first row or first column? What did you get?
Yh i just expanded it and it does satisfy the above Characteristic polynomial since A^3-5*A^2+6*A=0. Thanks for the help By The Way what will be an equivalent metrix to A
