Running drains for basement bath


Hello everyone! I'm in need of some advice and some answers. I'm in the process of running drains in the basement bathroom. I am wanting to have a drain for a tub and then a drain for a separate shower. I would like them to be on the same line. The builders left me with a rough in that ended up just being a pipe. I have included pictures.

Questions

1) Does the tub and shower require thier own p-trap or will one trap work?
2) With the rough pipe at an angle what is the best layout of pipe work? (I was thinking a 45, straight, 45, straight, p trap, 22.5, straight, p trap)

Any other comments are welcome. Thanks!

Running drains for basement bath


does the shower drain need venting? or is the rough pipe already vented somewhere?


thanks!

what do you mean by rough in pipe? is that the existing pipe?
If so, it probably is vented but check with local codes as far as how many feet between fixtures is a vent required.
Vents are really easy to run and will help you in the long run with flow.
