Solution:

1.
⇒ tan 46° tan 29° tan2 A tan 61° tan 44° = tan A
⇒ tan 46° tan 29° tan2 A tan (90 - 29)° tan (90 - 46)° = tan A
⇒ tan 46° tan 29° tan2 A cot 29° cot 46° = tan A
⇒ tan 46° tan 29° tan2 A(1/tan 29°) (1/tan 46°) = tan A
⇒ tan2 A = tan A
⇒ tan2 A - tan A = 0
⇒ tan A (tan A - 1) = 0
⇒ tan A = 0 and tan A = 1
⇒ A = 0° and 45°
⇒ tan (A + B) = (√3 + 1)/(√3 - 1)
⇒ tan (A + B) = tan 75°                      [∵ tan75 = tan(45 + 30) = (√3 + 1)/(√3 - 1)]
⇒ (A + B) = 75°
When A = 0°:
⇒ B = 75°
When A = 45°
⇒ B = 30°

2. 3.
When two circles touch each other externally, the distance between their centres is equal to the sum of their radiuses,
⇒ Distance = 12 = 7 + Radius of other circle
⇒ Radius of other circle = 12 – 7 = 5
∴ Diameter of other circle = 2(5) = 10 cm
4.
The train covers 750 km in three hours.
The speed of train = 750/3 = 250 km/hr
Initially the train had a relative speed of 70km/hr to the car.
Initial speed of car = 250 – 70 = 180 km/hr
The speed of car now is increased by 10%.
New speed of car = 180 + 18 = 198km/hr
At this speed the car travels for 3 hrs.
∴ The distance travelled by car = 198 × 3 = 594km

5.
Lets factorize each one them
390 = 2 × 3 × 5 × 13
300 = 2 × 2 × 3 × 5 × 5
495 = 3 × 3 × 5 × 11
Hence we can see only two numbers common two all three are 3 × 5 = 15
∴ 15 is the greatest number that divides 390, 495 and 300 without leaving a remainder.

6.

⇒ Let the monthly salaries of A and B be 8x and 9x respectively
⇒ after increment new salary of A and B be (8x + 4000) and (9x + 4000) respectively
⇒ According to question
⇒ (8x + 4000) / (9x + 4000) = 10 / 11
⇒ 11 ⨯ (8x + 4000) = 10 ⨯ (9x + 4000)
⇒ 88x + 44000 = 90x + 40000
⇒ 2x = 4000
⇒ x = Rs. 2000
∴ New salary of A = 8× 2000 + 4000 = Rs. 20000

7.

Let the ten’s digit and unit digit of the two-digit number be x and y respectively.
⇒  Two digit number = 10x + y
According to the given information,
y = 2x – 1
2x – y = 1      …..(i)
If the places of the digits are interchanged,
10y + x = 10x + y + 27
9y - 9x = 27
y – x = 3      …..(ii)
We get from 1 and 2,
y = 7
x = 4
∴ The number is 47.

8.
Let the three numbers be x, y and z.
Ratio of x and y = 4 ∶ 7
Ratio of y and z = 2 ∶ 3
Then, x ∶ y ∶ z = 8 ∶ 14 ∶21
Let the three number be 8a, 14a and 21a.
The product of x and z = 4200
⇒ x × z = 4200
⇒ 8a × 21a = 4200
⇒ a2 = 25
⇒ a = 5
First number = x = 8a = 40
Second number = y = 14a = 70
Third number = z = 21a = 105
The sum of three numbers = 40 + 70 + 105 = 215
9.
Average of 11 numbers = 8
∴ Sum of 11 numbers = 11 × 8 = 88
After a number 12 is removed
Sum of remaining 10 numbers = 88 - 12 = 76
∴ Average of remaining 10 numbers
= 76/10
= 7.6

10.

Let speed of boat in still water is SB and speed of current is SC and Speed of boat in upstream and downstream is SU and SD.
Speed of boat in still water SB = 18 km/hr
Speed of current, SC = 2 km/hr
Speed of boat in upstream, SU = 18 - 2 = 16 km/hr
Speed of boat in downstream, SD = 18 + 2 = 20 km/hr
∴ Total distance travelled = 3 × 16 + 2 × 20 = 48 + 40 = 88 km
