Repetition with Permutations-Number of Routes on a Grid Help?
How many routes are possible from A to B in this diagram:

I know it's a crap paint diagram. But you get the idea.
The answer is apparently 600. I tried doing 5!/(3!2!) X 6!/(3!3!) + 5!/(3!2!) X 6!/(4!2!) but no luck.

WHY do you use all those special formats?

And you are correct, that is a truly poor diagram.
Note that the two grids share two lattice points.
We need to count the paths through those two points: inclusion/exclusion.
