There are two paths of going to point c. One is A to c directly. The other is A to C via B. If cost of path A to C directly is 2n and from A-B is n and B to C is n+2. The. total cost of reaching path c by any way is 60. What is the value of n?

Can you share the original question?
Since the question is not clear, what the question asks?

There are two kinds of costs of routes from A to C, which are the cost of the direct route from A to C and the cost of the route via B.
The cost of the first one is 2n and that of the second one is 2n+2.
It seems that one of costs is 60, which gives us 2n = 60 or 2n+2 = 60.

From here, the question is not clear.

Happy Studying !!!
