Resistance of Four Rings

A uniform wire of resistance RR is cut into four circular rings of equal radius. Rings are then connected such that their centers lie on the vertices of a square (as illustrated in the figure above).

If the equivalent resistance between AA and BB can be expressed as aRb\frac{aR}{b}, where aa and bb are coprime positive integers, determine the value of a+ba+b.
