as there are eight roads there are eight options to get to town b. there are five options to get to town c. therefore you must do 8 (original options a - b) * 5 (options b-c)

another way to think about it it there are 8 ways to get to the first road of b to c there are eight ways to get to the second road of b to c and so on until the fifth road of b to c so you have 5 lots of 8 options thus 5*8
