1. We can plug in \((1,2)\) for both equations

 

\(x=\frac{1}{4}y+a\rightarrow 1=\frac{2}{4}+a\rightarrow\boxed{a=\frac{1}{2}}\)

 

\(y=\frac{1}{4}x+b\rightarrow2=\frac{1}{4}+b\rightarrow\boxed{b=\frac{7}{4}}\)

 

2. Then add:

 

\(\frac{1}{2}+\frac{7}{4}=\boxed{\frac{9}{4}}\)

 

That is the answer
