a.
Express the general solution of the given system of equations in terms of real-valued functions.
b.
Also draw a direction field, sketch a few of the trajectories, and describe the behavior of the solutions as $t\to \infty$.
$$\mathbf{x}' =\begin{pmatrix}
-2 &1\\
1 &-2
\end{pmatrix}\mathbf{x}$$

(a)
In the attachement
(b)
When t approaches to infinity, the solution is approaches to zero
Since $\lambda_1=-3$ , $\lambda_2=-1$
Eigenvalues are real but unequal and have the same sign, x=0 is a node and asymptotically stable.

Do not use external images; they will disappear at some moment. Please attach to your post.
Also, please correct your post, instead of lambda1=-3 write \lambda_1=-3 and surround by dollar signs
Code:
[Select]
$\lambda_1=-3$
What s/w did you use for a plot?
