Some hints:

Use the generalized triangle inequality.

is a convergent geometric series, thus the "tail" of the series can be made arbitrarily small. - Feb 16th 2011, 07:40 PMmremwo
I'm sorry, I still have no idea what to do. Could you give me another hint? This concept is very hard for me to grasp
