a and b are positive real numbers.

These two series converge to the same limit. Which I'm supposed to find. I managed to prove that these two series are convergent and even adjacent. But I don't see how to get the limit. All I found out by inserting numbers was that the limit probably is $\displaystyle \sqrt{ab} $
