Taking partial derivative of i'th and j'th element of variable?

How do I take partial derivative of something like this:
 
$$
\sum_{i=1}^n\sum_{j=1}^nb_i(b_ja_{ij})
$$
 
Both $b_i$ and $b_j$ is part of the same variable $b$, so should I take partial derivative with respect to both at the same time like this:

$$
\frac{\partial}{\partial b_ib_j} = a_{ij}
$$
 
I'm really stuck on this problem, any hint would be much appreciated
