Is this actually true? And if so is there a proof of it I'll be able to wrap my mind around?

I dont think it is true. For example:

Ah, good point, though

Is true as well. In fact, thinking about it, the numbers I tried out with this all had b>a. 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.
