Take the Centre of Mass, I Dare You!

Consider a homogenous rod of length \(L\) and mass \(M\), and a point-sized object of mass \(m\), kept at a distance \(L\) from one end of the rod, as shown in the figure.

Let the magnitude of force of gravitational attraction be \(F\)

If \(F=(\frac{a}{b})(\frac{GMm}{L^2})\), where \(a,b\) are coprime, natural numbers, find \(a+b\)
