Perhaps a hint...:

Your series is telescopic. - Mar 24th 2011, 06:31 PMwopashui

That is exactly the point!

If you let you get the series

so the series converges pointwise to zero there

Now by the geometric series when the series converges to

so this sum converges to the function

Can a series of uniformly continuous functions converge to a discontinuous function? - Mar 25th 2011, 08:21 PMwopashui
