From A to C we have all the possible arrangements of this set

 

( North, North, East)  =  C(3,1)   = 3

 

From C to B we have all the possible arrangements of this set

 

( North , North, East, East, East, East )   =  C(6,2)  = 15

 

So...the total number of paths from  A to B  through C are  3 * 15  = 45
