In the diagram below, the area of $\triangle BCD$ is 60. What is the length of side $\overline{BC}$? [asy] size(5cm); pair a=(9,8); pair b=(0,8); pair c=(0,0); pair d=(15,0); dot(a); dot(b); dot(c); dot(d); draw(b--c--d--a--b--d); label("$A$",a,NE); label("$B$",b,NW); label("$C$",c,SW); label("$D$",d,SE); label("9",(a+b)/2,N); label("15",(c+d)/2,S); draw(b/8--b/8+d/15--d/15); draw(b+(a-b)/9--b+(a-b)/9+(c-b)/8--b+(c-b)/8); [/asy]

Can you write this question in laTex so it is readable and you need to attach the diagram aforemention in the question.

 

Thanks!

Your question describes the diagram here but asks for BC instead of the Area. If that is the diagram described, then BC= 8

 

Hope it helps!
