B:
make a graph with M vertices and there is an edge from i to j if and only if you can use bead[j] immediately after bead[i] — in other word last L-1 characters of bead[i] and first L-1 characters of bead[j] is same .
Answer is number of paths with length of L in this graph .
to find this value , use dynamic programming with this state : index of current node and remaining length of path .
