I have a pic of a right square pyramid with equilateral triangular faces with each side of the triangle measuring 6 in. i have a line "d" intersecting one of the triangles making 2 right angle triangles. Using the pythagoream theory- how do I find the distance d?

I know a2 +b2=C2, but isn't it already known? Isn't the length of d just 6? Please help. Thanks,
