show that if the seriesΣuk and Σvk both diverge, then seiresΣ(uk + vk) and Σ(uk - vk) may either converge or diverge
Thank you !

I am sorry but if youd like me to answer you must specify do you mean and or do you mean and ? or what?

is my proof right???
and since both are divergent P-series but their addition is 0 which is convergent...
Take the general example of 1/x^a and -1/x^a with a =< 1 (Riemann series)
You can also take a look at alternated series
