What are the eigenvalues of the following $2\times 2$ matrix? $$\left( \begin{array}{cc} 2 & -1\\ -4 & 5\end{array}\right)$$
Let the eigen values be a,b
Sum of Eigen Values = Trace(Diagonal Sum)
=> a+b = 2+5 = 7
Product of Eigen Values = Det(A)
=> a.b = 6
Solving these we get 1 and 6.. So, Option(B) is Correct ..
