    If you know how to do a taylor series expansion, try expanding [tex]x \sqrt{1+a/x}[/tex] and [tex]x \sqrt{1+b/x}[/tex] about (1/x) =0 . You'll find that the zero order terms will cancel each other, terms higher than first order will be zero i the limit x->infty and you will be left with (a-b)/2.
