Kahn Academy Question
TaylorWarrington
I was watching an Eigenvectors and Eigenspaces video on Kahn Academy. They write the matrix A - lamdaxIn as LamdaxIn - A. Does anyone know why this is and if there is a difference between the two? Thanks!

They are the same because you set the determinant equal to zero, so the negative goes away. It only changes the amount of negatives you have in your calculation.
