Code:```4 choices for R 2 choices for A that move toward an edge 2 choices for I 2 choices for N 1 choice for A that moves toward a vertex 2 choices for I that move toward an edge 2 choices for N 1 choice for I that moves toward a vertex 3 choices for N```

4*(2*2*2 + 1*(2*2 + 1*3)) = 4*(8 + (4 + 3)) = 4*15 = 60
