Now, putting these into the quotient gives you what?
ok so then that equals (1/h) / h right? then what do i do

No, how did you get that?

That was my inclination as well...many folks make this kind of error.
alright so then ( (1) / 16(h+16) ) / h = ( (1) / (16h+265) ) / h = (16h+256)^-1 / h , so to answer my question a= 16 & b=256
Yes, good work!

Good catch, I only looked at the end result.
