ATQ, 5 × 172º + (n – 5) × 160º= 180ºn – 360º Centres at:

============================================================= 860º + 160ºn – 800º = 180ºn – 360º

60º + 360º= 180ºn – 160ºn 20ºn = 420º

n = 21 Ans.

65. (C) The sum of any two sides of a triangle is greater than the 3rd side.

 2 + 3 > 5, which is wrong. 2 + 3 > 6, which is wrong.

(2, 3, 5) or (2, 3, 6) will not form a triangle. Triplets (3, 5, 6) & (2, 5, 6) are true for the sides of a triangle.

71. (C)

a sin + b cos = c On squaring, a 2 sin 2 + b 2 cos 2 + 2ab sin cos (i)

Let a cos – b sin = k

a 2 cos 2 +b 2 sin 2 – 2ab sin cos = k 2 (ii)

From equation (i) & (ii),

a 2 (sin 2 + cos 2 )+b 2 (sin 2 + cos 2 )=c 2 +k 2
