4 2 2
Diagonalize A = 2 4 2 if possible if λ = 2, 8 are the
2 2 4
eigenvalues.
Solution: Only 2 eigenvalues λ = 2, 8 are given. This means one of
these could be repeated. One way to check is to nd the trace of
the matrix which is 4+4+4=12 and the sum of the eigenvalues
which is 2+8+?. Since they must be same ? must be 2.

Since we have repeated eigenvalue 2, it is possible (not already
sure) that A may not be diagonalizable. Finding the eigenvectors
for λ = 2 is the only way to nd out.
