**Q.**A slip of paper is given to A, who marks it with either a plus or a minus sign; the probability of his writing a plus is 13. He then passes the slip to B, who may either leave it or change the sign before passing it on to C. Next C passes the slip to D after perhaps changing the sign; finally D passes it to an honest judge after perhaps changing the sign. The judge sees a plus sign on the slip. It is known that B, C and D each change the sign with probability 23. Then probability that A originally wrote a plus is ab (where a, b are coprime numbers), then the value of a+b is
