Solution (from eddybob123):

$$\Rightarrow 71>2\sqrt{1260}$$

$$\Rightarrow 1< 72-2\sqrt{1260}$$

$$\Rightarrow 1^2< (\sqrt{42}-\sqrt{30})^2$$

$$\Rightarrow 1< \sqrt{42}-\sqrt{30}$$

$$\Rightarrow 2<2(\sqrt{42}-\sqrt{30})$$

$$\Rightarrow 7-2\sqrt{42}+6<6-2\sqrt{30}+5$$

$$\Rightarrow (\sqrt{7}-\sqrt{6})^2<(\sqrt{6}-\sqrt{5})^2$$

$$\Rightarrow \sqrt{7}-\sqrt{6}<\sqrt{6}-\sqrt{5}$$
