    Anyone can explain how to find eigenvectors?

    Please, explain how to find eigenvectors step by step. As I really didn't get, I read many sources, but I couldn't find easier way to find them.
    Thank you!

    First find the eigenvalues, \lambda, then solve for the column vector X, which will be the eigenvector, in AX=\lambda X
