    Let r and R are radius of circles A and B
    Draw HP ⊥DH and NI ⊥ to DC ( see sketch)
    In right triangle DHP we have DH^2=DB. DP
    In right triangle DGC we have BG^2= DB. BC
    So FG^2=4. BG^2= DB.(4BC)
    Since FG=DH => DP=4.BC= 4.R
    Since NC // HP So DN/DH= DC/DP=2r/(4R)=NI/BH=NI/R => NI=1/2.r
    Triangle AIN is 30-60-90 degrees triangle.
    So ∠ (MCN)=1/2 ∠ (MAN)= 30 degrees
