eigenvalues!

@ssf123 please stick around after you post a question so we can discuss it the formula you have above is the same as$A\vec x=\lambda\vec x$the augmented matrix here being$A=\left[\begin{matrix}2 & 3 \\ 4 & 3\end{matrix}\right]$to find the eigenvalues we have to solve$\det(\lambda I-A)=0$for lambda let me know if/where you get stuck.
