Best answer

Answer $630$

from A robot can go $\text{(d,d,r,r)}$ [d=down, r=right] $ = 4!/2!2!$

then go to P line in $1$ way

then ending point of P to B $\text{(d,d,r,r,r,r)} = 6! / 4!2!$

then upwards B to E $\text{(u,u,u,u,u,u,r)} = 7! / 6!$

then E to A $1$ way

total $4! / 2!2! \times 1 \times 6! / 4!2! \times 7! / 6! \times 1 = 630$
