#### Solution

Given: In a ΔABC, AD is the bisector of angle BAC. AB = 8cm, and DC = 3cm and BD = 6cm.

To find: AC

We know that the internal bisector of angle of a triangle divides the opposite side internally in the ratio of the sides containing the angle.

Hence,

(AB)/(AC)=(BD)/(DC)

8/(AC)=6/3

8/(AC)=(8xx3)/6

AC= 4cm
Hence we got the result a
