i have found the eigenvalues from A= |1 2| |5 4| as -1 and 6. then for the eigenvectors then |-5 2| |x1|=0 |5 -2| |x2|=0 so x1 = 2/5 x2 but from here how do i get the eigenvetor of (2/5) ?

You are incorrect about your last step. You sub the eigenvalue into the equation So for the eigenvalue you have: Which says that and and you can solve this from there. -Dan
