# Minimum Fraction Sum

**Algebra**Level 3

**distinct** integers \(p\), \(q\), \(r\) and \(s\) are chosen from the set \(\{1,2,3, \ldots, 16, 17\}\). The minimum possible value of \(\frac{p}{q}+\frac{r}{s}\) can be written as \(\frac{a}{b}\), where \(a\) and \(b\) are positive, coprime integers. What is the value of \(a + b\)?
