Dividing a rod

Discrete Mathematics Level 4

A rod is marked at random in 4 points and divided at those points.

If the chance that none of the parts shall be greater than \(\frac{1}{4} \) of the rod can be expressed as \( \frac ab\) where \(a \) and \( b\) are coprime positive integers, then find the value of \(\frac{b}{4a} \).

Bonus: Generalize this for \(n\) points.
