I need help with the following problem.

Given an acute triangle $ABC$. $BB_1$ and $ CC_1$ are the altitudes. If $\frac{B_1C_1} {C_1B} = \sqrt 2$ and $\angle ACB=75^{\circ}$, find the angles $\angle ABC$ and $\angle BAC$

No efforts? How do you know that? I have been trying to solve it for a few hours already... – Adam Jun 22 '12 at 19:25
Actually, I've just found $\angle BAC= 45$ and $\angle ABC=60$. Could anyone confirm it? – Adam Jun 22 '12 at 19:27
Well that's better – Norbert Jun 22 '12 at 19:32
Your results are correct, you can write answer to your question. Other MSE users could benefit from it. – Norbert Jun 22 '12 at 19:46
