**Reiny**, Tuesday, April 23, 2013 at 8:19amwe want two fractions with the smallest possible numerators and the largest possible denominators

let's try

1/17 + 2/16 = 25/36 = appr.1838..

or

1/16 + 2/17 = 49/272 = appr .18014 which is smaller than above

so a/b = 49/272 and the value of

a+b = 321
