how can I prove that if A is a converges and B diverges

that the Sum of these series (A +B) diverges..

( A = a1 + a2 + a3 + ...

B = b1 + b2 + b3 + ...) if the series start from n=1

The convergence of the series is determined by the row of partial sums.

Therefore, if both rows converge, the sum of both will too.

I dont think it´s that easy actually.

Because what I forgot to say was that these series go from

n=1 to n=infinity.

And in infinity normal rules dont always apply like SumA + SumB = Sum(A+B)

I need a proof... :)

In this case they do. If Sum(A) and Sum(B) exist thenI dont think it´s that easy actually.

Because what I forgot to say was that these series go from

n=1 to n=infinity.

And in infinity normal rules dont always apply like SumA + SumB = Sum(A+B)

Sum(A+ B) exists and is equal to Sum(A)+ Sum(B).

I had assumed you were talking about infinite series since otherwise it wouldn't make sense to talk about "convergent" and "divergent".
