Hard to create a regular polygon

12 points are spaced evenly around the perimeter of a circle. Distinct points are chosen uniformly at random until the chosen points form the vertices of a regular polygon with at least 3 sides. In most cases, we need to pick all 12 points, in order to form a regular polygon. The expected number of points chosen is \( 12 - \frac{a}{b} \) where \(a\) and \(b\) are coprime positive integers. What is the value of \(a + b?\)
