How to prove that if $\sum k_n$ converges absolutely and $\lim_{n \to +\infty}c_n = 0$ (where $c_n$ is a sequence) then $ \sum k_n c_n$ converges absolutely

I have noticed that in your first 2 days as a member of this site you have asked 5 questions. I wanted to make sure that you are aware of the quotas 50 questions/30 days and 6 questions/24 hours, so that you can plan posting your questions accordingly. (If you try to post more questions, stackexchange software will not allow you to do so.) For more details see meta. – Martin Sleziak Sep 29 '13 at 17:57
Hint: the implication holds as soon as the sequence $(c_n)$ is bounded. – Did Sep 29 '13 at 18:32

Hint: If $\lim_{n\to\infty}c_n=0$, then for some $N\geq1$, we have $|c_k|\leq1$ for $k\geq N$. Now think of the comparison test.

give me a few minutes – Danny Sep 29 '13 at 1:33
it is just the inequality $\vert k_k \vert \vert c_k \vert \leq \vert k_k \vert$ for some $k \geq N$ now iam ready to compare right? – Danny Sep 29 '13 at 1:49
That is indeed correct. – Clayton Sep 29 '13 at 2:07
