“You know, I just love Grace Kelly. Not because she was a princess, not because she was an actress, not because she was my friend, but because she was just about the nicest lady I ever met. Grace brought into my life as she brought into yours, a soft, warm light every time I saw her, and every time I saw her was a holiday of its own. No question, I’ll miss her, we’ll all miss her, God bless you, Princess Grace.”
James Stewart

(a) If is absolutely convergent, show that both of the
series and are convergent.
(b) If is conditionally convergent, show that both of the
series and are divergent.
44. Prove that if is a conditionally convergent series and
is any real number, then there is a rearrangement of

Take just enough positive terms so that their sum is greater
than . Then add just enough negative terms so that the
cumulative sum is less than . Continue in this manner and use
Theorem 11.2.6.]
45. Suppose the series is conditionally convergent.
(a) Prove that the series is divergent.
(b) Conditional convergence of is not enough to determine whether is convergent. Show this by giving an
example of a conditionally convergent series such that
converges and an example where diverges.
