PROOF

If A has eigenvectors with corresponding eigenvalues Then

are linearly independent.

linear independence:

II. ; so, if these eigenvectors were not L.E., .

III.

IV. The eigenvalues

V. Now it is a system of equations; multiply II by and then subtract it from

IV.

VI. .

VII. Therefore, b MUST be 0. When we plug that back in, we see or,
