Since triangles CBD  and  CAD  are on the same base (CD)...then their areas are to each other as their heights

 

So  

 

[ CAD ] / [ CBD ]  =  12 / 7

 

So

 

[ CAD ]  = (12/7) [ CBD ]

 

So

 

[ CBDA ] + [CBD ]  =  [ CAD ]

 

15   +   [CBD ]  =  (12/7) [ CBD ]

 

15  =  (12/7) [ CBD ] - [CBD ]

 

15  =  (12/7) [CBD ] - (7/7)[CBD]

 

15 = (5/7) [CBD ]

 

(7/5)(15)  = CBD

 

21  =  CBD

 

But  CAD  =  (12/7) [ CBD ]  = (12/7) (21) =  12 * 3  = 36  = [CDA]

 

You are correct  !!!
