Eigenvector problem
Posted:

For the case where x^3+8*x^216*x=0 the two roots wolfram alpha gives is x=0 and x=4. But, there is a third root that is cancelled out from factoring and dividing into 0, which could represent any real number. Could this eigenvalue or root represent an infinite number of eigenvectors?
