Hello, got a proof question for you.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

QUESTION

Prove that if an infinite series converges, then the associative property holds.

Am I missing something here because I don't see much to this proof. In short, if the convergent series is summed in any order anddoes notconverge to the same limit as the series would when summed in order, then the terms in the series must be different since we know the associative property holds for addition.

What am I proving?
