Let $$u_n$$ be a sequence of positive real number.
If $$\sum_{n=1}^{\infty}u_n^{2}$$ finite + (condition??) then $$\sum_{n=1}^{\infty}u_n$$ finite.

Are you looking for a necessary or a sufficient condition?

and real?

IIRC, then there is a theorem like this:

Given the sequence of positive real number (un)

The series $$\sum_{n = 1} ^ {\infty} u_n$$ converge, if and only if $$\lim_{n \rightarrow \infty}(u_n \times n ) = 0$$.

Let's see if you can prove this theorem. :)

Now, using the above theorem, can you try to work out the problem? :)
