Consider a 25×25 grid of city streets. Let S be the points of intersection of the streets, and let P be the set of paths from the bottom left corner to the top right corner of which consist of only walking to the right and up. A point s is chosen uniformly at random from S and then a path p is chosen uniformly at random from P. Over all (s,p) pairs, the probability that the point s is contained in the path p can be expressed as a/b where a and b are coprime positive integers. What is the value of a+b?
