### Help me; need answer before tonight. Thanks!

Let the incircle of triangle $ABC$ be tangent to sides $\overline{BC}$, $\overline{AC}$, and $\overline{AB}$ at $D$, $E$, and $F$, respectively. Prove that triangle $DEF$ is acute.

I have tried proving that triangle DEF's angles were less than the opposite angles in triangle ABC, but that wasn't really complete. Can anyone help? Thanks!

In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.
If it ain't broke, fix it until it is.
Always satisfy the Prime Directive of getting the right answer above all else.
