A: Find the no. of ways to travel from A to C via B

B: If a man wanted to travelroundtrip from A to C via B, how many ways are possible? Suppose he chooses a diff route, how many ways are possible?

thanks for the help. we've been given all the basic formula for permutations but I'm at a loss at how to apply them still.
