You should form your equations with only $\ddot x_n$ on the left (divide by $m_n$) to do this. Then form your matrices.

You aren't trying!

We have $$ \begin{aligned}&& m_1 \ddot x_1 &= k_1(x_2  x_1)  k_2x_1 \\ && 2\ddot x_1 &= 2x_2  3x_1 \\ && \ddot x_1 &= x_2  \tfrac32 x_1 \\ &\text{similarly} & \ddot x_2 &= \tfrac12 x_1  \tfrac34 x_1 \end{aligned}$$ Now we assume that $x_n =a_n \mathrm e^{\mathrm i \omega t}$ so that $\ddot x_n = \omega ^2 x_n$. You can now eliminate $\ddot x_n$ from the equations and form an eigenvalue matrix problem.

I could not solve my teacher. I'm trying, but no solution. Can you solve it? Although a little way then you are here.

$$\begin{aligned} &\text{We have} & \ddot x_1 &= x_2  \tfrac32 x_1 \qquad \ddot x_1 = \omega^2 x_1 \\ &\text{so} & \omega^2 x_1 &= x_2  \tfrac32 x_1 \implies (\omega^2  \tfrac32)x_1 + x_2 = 0 \end{aligned}$$ You can do the same for $\ddot x_2$. Then you can make a matrix equation $Ax = 0$ who CH means that the determinant of A is zero. That gives an equation which you can solve for $\omega$.
