(A) 30 (B) 40 (C) 50 (D) 60 (E) 70 Let \(∠C = x\)
\(∠B = x + 10\)
\(∠A = x + 10 + 10 = x + 20\)
\(∠A + ∠B + ∠C = 180\)
\(x + 20 + x + 10 + x = 180\)

The sum of all the angles in a triangle is 180 Degree. If the three angles have to differ by 10 and add to 180, the only possibility(with a difference of 10) is when the three angles are 50,60 and 70.
Since ∠B is 10 degree greater than ∠C and 10 degree smaller than ∠A, it must be 60(Option D)

In Triangle ABC, ∠A is 10 degrees greater than ∠B, and ∠B is 10 degrees greater than ∠C. The value of angle B is
(A) 30 (B) 40 (C) 50 (D) 60 (E) 70
Solution: Given: a=b+10 b=c+10 Also, we know a+b+c=180.eq (1)
Therfore subsitute the value of a and c in the eq(1) we ger b+10+b+b10=180. 3b=180. b=60.
So Option D

(A) 30 (B) 40 (C) 50 (D) 60 (E) 70 Hi, Here actually difference of 10 doesn't matter. Any difference but similar would give us SAME answer as 60.. WHY? The three angles differ by certain amount so they are in AP and central angle B would be the MEANSo 3*B =180..... B=60 D

If all three angles are equal: 60, 60, 60
If the three angles are in Arithmetic Progression with a difference of 10: 50, 60, 70
So the central angle is 60 only. Hence D answer

(A) 30 (B) 40 (C) 50 (D) 60 (E) 70 Let the value of \(∠A = a°\) , \(∠B = b°\) and \(∠C = c°\) We know, \(∠A + ∠B + ∠C = 180°\) Or, \(a° + b° + c° = 180°\) Quote: ∠A is 10 degrees greater than ∠B, and ∠B is 10 degrees greater than ∠C Value of \(∠B\) = \(( c° + 10° )\) Value of \(∠A\) = \(( b° + 10° )\) => \(( c° + 10° ) + 10°\) = \(c° + 20°\) Value of \(∠C\) = c° Now, \((c° + 20°)\) + \(( c° + 10° )\) + \(c°\) = \(180°\) Or, \(3c° + 30° = 180°\) Or, \(3c° = 150°\) So, c° = 50° Now, as Value of \(∠B\) = \(( c° + 10° )\) = \(60°\) Thus, answer will be (D) 60°

(A) 30 (B) 40 (C) 50 (D) 60 (E) 70 We can let angle C = x, angle B = 10 + x, and angle A = 20 + x. Since there are 180 degrees in a triangle, we have: x + x + 10 + x + 20 = 180 3x + 30 = 180 3x = 150 x = 50 Thus, angle B is 50 + 10 = 60 degrees. Answer: D

Here,<A+<B+<C=180 and B=C+10, A=B+10=>A=C+10+10 =>A=C+20 Hence, C+20+C+10+C=180 C=150/3=50
Therefore, B=50+10=60 Answer: D
