What are the sequences of all the possible tripeptides that could be made with just 2 amino acids?

What is the formula for calculating the number of different tripeptides that could be made with just two different amino acids?

How many polypeptides, 100 amino acids in length, could be formed from two different amino acids?

How many poly peptides, 100 amino acids in length could be made using all 20 common amino acids?

Biology homework questions. I do not understand any of these questions because we have not been taught this. Could anyone help please?!?!?!
Thanks!

Two types of amino acids
well theres 20 different types of proteins. so thats a tricky question your gonna have to work out the combinations for each of them to form a tripeptide.
