Default shell script compare md5 sum

I wrote a script to compare 2 same file but in different dir and filename. The md5 sum of both file is the same but how do i assign the output of md5 sum to a variable like $a and $b? Here's my code
a=$(md5 /home/abc/
b=$(md5 /home/abc/43/

if [ "$a" = "$b" ]
         echo " match"
         echo " no match"
I don't know how to assign the output to a variable.. pls help.
