Solution: 2018-12 Property of Eigenvectors

Let \(A\) be a \(2\times 2\) matrix. Prove that if \(Av_1=\lambda_1v_1\) and \(Av_2=\lambda_2v_2\) for distinct reals \(\lambda_1\) and \(\lambda_2\) and nonzero vectors \(v_1\) and \(v_2\), then both columns of \(A-\lambda_1 I\) is a multiple of \(v_2\).
