Let H, I, O be orthocenter/incenter/circumcenter of triangle ABC respectively. Let L be intersection of line CI and circumcircle such that L is not C. Given: AH = OH and IL = AB. Find all internal angles of ABC. This problem has kept my attention for at least two hours now.. I find it very hard to use the given information. All I have so far is: and Here denotes measurement of angle, the symbol for latex is not so good. Any hints are very appreciated

1) AL = IL = BL; 2) Notice that AOBH is cyclic (which was the hardest part to me, I never see these things). Then it is trivial, I will not post answer so you can try it Here goes another one, just as hard and just as nice. I couldn't do this yet. is a triangle with and . The incircle touches and at and respectively. Let be the circumference with diameter . The line intersects at points: and . Find the distance between the midpoint of and the midpoint of . Geometry problems like these remind me of P = NP.. it is very hard to find solution, but very easy to check them

Thanks. I am trying it by using vectors. It seems a bit cleaner. Example: Let AC intersect BH at P Then look for one more equation related to and Goodness! Math by nature is hard. I mean it can get very, very messy.
