The numbers 1,2,,17 are divided into 5 disjoint sets. One set has 5 elements, one set has 4 elements, two sets have 3 elements and the last set contains the 2 remaining elements. Two players each choose a number from 1 to 17 at random. The probability they choose numbers from the same set can be expressed as a/b, where a and b are coprime positive integers. What is the value of a+b?
