Abstract: A series $ \sum {{a_n}} $ of nonnegative real numbers is determined up to a constant multiple by the comparisons of its subsums, provided that $ {a_i} \leqslant \sum\nolimits_{i > n} {{a_i}} $ and $ \{ {a_n}\} $ decreases to 0. This characterization is an improvement of Leth and Malitz's results.
