Sorry if it is hard to read.\(In triangle $ABC,$ let the angle bisectors be $\overline{BY}$ and $\overline{CZ}$. Given $AB = 8$, $AY = 6$, and $CY = 3$, find $BC$. [asy] pair A,B,C,X,Y,Z,I; A= (0,0); B = (1,0); C = (0.8,0.7); X = intersectionpoint(B--C , A -- (bisectorpoint(B,A,C))); Y = intersectionpoint(A--C, B -- scale(6)*( (bisectorpoint(C,B,A)) - B)); I = intersectionpoint(A--X, B--Y); Z = extension(A,B,C,I); draw(A--B--C--cycle); draw(B--Y); draw(C--Z); label("$A$",A,SW); label("$B$",B,SE); label("$C$",C,N); label("$I$",I,SW); label("$Y$",Y,NW); label("$Z$",Z,S); [/asy] \)
