Angle  AOB   =  Angle COD

Angle ABO = Angle CDO

So...by AA congruency....triangle AOB  is similar to triangle COD

 

Since  AO / AC = 3/4 ......then CO must be (1/3)AO  ⇒  3CO = AO

 

So

 

OD/ CO = OB / AO

 

OD / CO = 6/ (3CO)

 

OD / 1  = 6/3

 

OD = 2

 

So  BD =  BO + OD   =  6 + 2   =   8
