This is a pain

a = AD + DQ
b = AB+BP

DQ = 1/2(AB), BP = 1/2(AD)
a = AD + 1/2(AB)
b = AB + 1/2(AD)

You want 1 AB, so you will need to use multiples of a's and b's to get the result you want (it should be multiples of 2s and 4s). You might need to divide or use fractions to get the answer.

Suggestion to all respondents: I wouldn't respond to this until the OP shows they've made at least some effort to solve this themselves.
