Pigeonhole Principle

please help me

Given 7 real numbers, show that there are two of them, call it \(a\) and \(b\), that always satisfy : \[0<\frac{a-b}{ab+1}<\sqrt3\]

my friend tell me that we can substitute \(a\) with \(\tan x\) and \(b\) with \(\tan y\). Then what?

Is the upper bound supposed to be \(\dfrac{1}{\sqrt{3}}\) instead of \(\sqrt{3}\)?

draw the tan- graph in the region [-90,+90], now divide it in 6 region(30degrees each),replace the number with tan x,thus there would be two numbers,tan m and tan n where (WLOG) 0<m-n<30degree...
