I am guessing it has something to do with the comparison test but i can't quite put my finger on it, something with 0<=(abs(a_n)-abs(b_n))^2

In addition am i on the right lines with thinking that, as the sum of (b_n)^2 converges, there must exist a number N such that sum(b_n)^2<1 for all n>=N

Then look at the sum that goes from N to infinity of a_n*b_n ? this is the part im stuck at,

any help would much appreciated, many thanks.
