# Start with hints

Do you really need a hint? Try it first!

Show that is cyclic. Afterwards, study the consequences of this result.

As , hint 1 means that . Hence is the orthocentre of . Let be the circumcenter of and be its incentre. From the information given in the second link of hint 1, we see that are colinear.Also, as , lies on .

As lies on , is the internal bisector of . As is also an altitude, this means that . By symmetry, and . Hence the triangle is equilateral.
