Sorry, that approximation may be a bit on the crude side!!

What you have is the difference between a pair of Harmonic series.

There are alternative quick calculations for that,

and you may be requiring a particular type of solution,

possibly along other lines.

One approximation is...

where is Euler's constant.

Taking either or

we get approximately

or

which is basically approximately the difference between the logarithms
