# Homework: prove or disprove $\lim_{n\to\infty}n\sum_{k=n}^{\infty}b_k$ converge

Suppose that $b_n>0$ for all $n$, that $$\sum_{n=1}^{\infty}b_n$$ and $$\sum_{n=1}^{\infty}nb_n$$ are all convergent. does that guarantee $$\lim_{n\to\infty}n\sum_{k=n}^{\infty}b_k$$ exists?

Welcome to math.SE: since you are new, I wanted to let you know a few things about the site. In order to get the best possible answers, it is helpful if you say in what context you encountered the problem, and what your thoughts on it are; this will prevent people from telling you things you already know, and help them give their answers at the right level. –  Cameron Buie Nov 14 '12 at 1:49

For $k \ge n$ note that $nb_k \le k b_k$, so that you have $$\sum_{k=n}^{\infty} nb_k \le \sum_{k=n}^{\infty} k b_k.$$ Since you have assumed that $\sum_{k=1}^{\infty} kb_k$ converges, use what you know about limits of tail ends of convergent series.
