If b does not equal zero, and \(\text{ab} = \frac{\text{b}}{4}\), what is the value of a?

\(\frac{1}{4}\)

Explanation

To solve for a, divide both sides of the equation by b:
\(\text{ab} = \frac{\text{b}}{4}\)

\(\frac{\text{ab}}{\text{b}}= \frac{\text{b}}{4} \div b\)

\(\text {a} = \frac{\text {b}}{4}\times \frac{1}{b}\)

\(\text{a}=\frac{1}{4}\)
