bd = 9 cm
in a 30°-60°-90° triangle, the ratio of side lengths is 1 : √3 : 2. that is, the longest side (hypotenuse) is twice the length of the shortest side.
all of the triangles in your geometry are 30°-60°-90° triangles. ac is the hypotenuse of δacd, and the short side of δabc.
the short side ad of δacd will be half the length of ac, so 3 cm. the hypotenuse ab of δabc will be twice the length of ac, so 12 cm. segment bd is the difference of the lengths ab and ad, so is
bd = ab -ad
bd = 12 cm - 3 cm = 9 cm
comment on side length ratios
you can figure the ratios of side lengths in a 30°-60°-90° triangle by considering the trig ratios of the angles. or you can figure the length of the altitude of an equilateral triangle of side length 2 using the pythagorean theorem.
