Here is a link to the question:ey! So I have a question on an assignment asking to orthogonally diagonalize the matrix:

a 0 b

0 a 0

b 0 a

I know the steps on how to do this, but am having a hard time trying to figure out how to factor this correctly to get all of the eigenvalues at the beginning. I can factor it to a point, but then cannot seem to figure out how to solve for the eigenvalues.

If anyone could help, that would be great!
