I'm a little confused about similar matrices.
Are the the following matrices similar?
Now I know that similar matrices share a variety of properties....some of which I've already calculated.
Rank = 2, Determinant = 0, Trace = 1, Char. Polynomial =
Rank = 3, Determinant = 2, Trace = 2, Char. Polynomial =
From this I would say that these two aren't similar, however, I have read other posts on this forum that make me think that the above properties aren't enough to safely conclude that the are or are not similar.
I am aware that if 2 matrices, A and B, are similar then there is a matrix P such that
.
How then, do I calculate P?
Thanks in advance for any help
