Problem 1 – Hint 1

A warning: although there are only bound currents in this problem, it does not mean that H=0.
There are two ways of solving the problem. First, use the Ampère’s circuital law for a suitably selected loop while keeping in mind the boundary conditions for the magnetic field at the surface of the magnet. Second, make a good use of the formula B/\mu_0=H+M.
