Can you write Σ1an - ΣN+1an as a sum?

It might be helpful to put Σ1an = c .

Please take a look at our LaTeX tutorial -- https://www.physicsforums.com/help/latexhelp/
I believe this is what you were trying to convey:
##\sum_{n=1}^{\infty}a_{n}## converges.

For ##N \in \mathbb{N}, \sum_{n = N+1}^{\infty}a_n## also converges.

What does it mean for a series to converge? How is this defined?

Also, is this a homework problem?
