The infinite series defined by [tex]\Sigma a_{n}[/tex], with [tex]a_{n}>0[/tex] are convergent. If then the series defined by [tex]\Sigma a_{n}^{2}[/tex] coverges, prove it!

2. Relevant equations

The relevant equations has been stated above.

3. The attempt at a solution

Since every term in the first infinite series are positive the partial sums are monotone increasing. And, since it converges these will be bounded above. Then it feels like the series of the squares will be bounded above as well. Since, due to convergence, every term approaches zero.

Is it correct to say that since the term [tex]a_{n}[/tex] tends to zero as n tends to infinity, its square also will?

Are my reasoning correct? How am I supposed to do it formally?

So very grateful for hints!
