I was wondering how you would calculate the delta-T'(would it be correct to word delta-T' as change in time change?) for this example: (this is not a HW question)

observer A is at earth. observer B fly's 10 light years away at .5c to a non-rotating black hole 1 million times the mass of Earth's star. B does a half orbit around the black hole at a distance of 1.1 times the swartschild radius. During the orbit B increase his velocity to stay in orbit and then returns home at .5c.

how much time has passed for B compared to A on the trip to the black hole?

how much time passed for B compared to A during the orbit?

how much total time passed for B compared to A?

I drew an illustration and put it as an attachment.

This is NOT a HW question. I simply made the example to give some life to the problem. if you don't show how to solve the problem, I won't care. I am really interested in how time dilation is effected by velocity and gravity at the same time. any and all contributions of knowledge or ideas on this subject are greatly appreciated . thanks in advance!

edit: Neglect Earth's gravity for any time dilation.
