Find an invertable matrix P such that $P^{-1} $ is diagonal.

Find an invertable matrix P such that $P^{-1} $$AP$ is diagonal. Hint: use eigendecomposition.

$\begin{matrix} 4 & 0 & 0 \\ 3 & 2 & 0 \\ 0 & 2 & 1 \end{matrix} $

  • Are you sure the question statement is correct ? Is it P inverse or D as per diagonalization

  • If the given matrix is A then you need to find A= PD(P^-1) where P is invertible and D is diagonal?

  • Sorry, missed it in the formula creator

  • Okay so basically we need to do a decomposition
