the riemann zeta function is defined for p > 1 as prove by considering so my thoughts: as then we just use the definition of convergence to prove that the partial sum converges to 1 and we're done however I'm having troubles trying to show that for some epsilon there exists a real number H s.t. P>H and N>H implies I've tried using geometric series for the inside sum and then trying to rearrange for P or N but to no avail  any help please

If you rearrange into geometric series: Then, each sums to: Does that help?

I'm sorry but I think you misunderstood what I was asking: I'm asking, how do I show that for all there exists a real number H s.t. P>H and N>H implies
