Did you check if the eigenvalues are equal?
You should really reread this in a textbook For a nxn Matrix there are at most n different EValues (which are numbers). EVectors (which are vectors) to different EValues are linear independent, so you end up with at most n linear independent EValues either. Eigenvalues (w) and eigenvectors (v) of a matrix (M) belong inseparably together and define each other: Mv=wv.
