1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
Suppose [itex] c_{n} > 0[/itex] for each [itex] n\geq 0.[/itex] Prove that if [itex]\sum ^{\infty}_{n=0} c_{n}[/itex] is Cesaro summable, then the partial sums [itex] S_{N} [/itex] are bounded. 2. Relevant equations  3. The attempt at a solution I tried contraposition; that was getting me nowhere. I have a few inequalities here and there but they don't tell me anything. I need to show that there exists an upperbound for the partial sums. This means there exists a least upperbound. I need to find that least upperbound. Because[itex] c_{n} > 0[/itex] for each [itex] n\geq 0,[/itex] then the series is nondecreasing, which means the partial sums are nondecreasing, so we are looking for an upperbound, not a lowerbound.
