Quick Eigenvectors Question

Hi

The following question ask to find eigenvector:

Now the answer i got was correct according to book, however i don't understand why they choose these two values instead of the other one, which is the repeated eigenvalue 1:

eigenvalue 5

eigenvalue 1 repeated value

not included in answer

P.S

Re: Quick Eigenvectors Question

maybe my question is not clear. Is an acceptable answer?

Re: Quick Eigenvectors Question

is (1,1,0) an eigenvector? yes, corresponding to the eigenvalue 5 (see post #2).

I certainly don't understand your question. You say that "i don't understand why they choose these two values instead of the other one, which is the repeated eigenvalue 1". Which two "values" are you saying they give?

certainly is included, as an eigenvector of eigenvalue 5, not 1.
