Given the matrix A=[29,18][-50,-31] explain why there is no invertible matix P that diagonalizes A. So I've solved for the eigenvalue and found that it is x2=[-3/5][1] and the A^-1 is [1/29,0][5/3,29/30]. Thank you in advance for your help.

Thank you for explaining that. It makes sense using the rank to solve it.
