Modular arithmetic - Stereotomy - 04/02/2010
I'll just preface this by saying I'm just a physics undergrad, so this might be a bit beyond my understanding, and I may well be missing something obvious or making a stupid mistake, but while playing around I noticed that it seems to be true that Is this actually true? And if so is there a proof of it I'll be able to wrap my mind around? RE: Modular arithmetic - bo198214 - 04/02/2010

Perhaps that's an additional condition that either b > a or m, n > 1? Just quickly tried this for a few low examples, a = 8, 9, 10, 11, and it seems to hold.
