Hello...

Given the matrix A

$
A = $\begin{array}{ccc} 0 & 1 & 0 \\ 0 & 0 & 1 \\ 1 & -3 & 3 \end{array}$
$

I am trying to do this exercise about jordan canonical form... I understand that I have to calculate using this expression $J = P^{-1}AP$

But all the eigenvalues of the matrix are the same... all of them are equal to one! Therefore, the matrix P is not invertible! How should I proceed in this case? Could anyone explain to me please?

Thanks
