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! big_smile

In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.
If it ain't broke, fix it until it is.
