**MathMate**, Tuesday, July 1, 2014 at 10:22amI think we are missing information here.

AB=AD, and ∠BAD=90° mean that BD is a diameter, and hence ∠BCD=90°.

Also, AB=AD means that ∠ABD=∠ADB=45°.

However, we do not know anything about ∠DBC or ∠BDC, just that they are complementary.

So ΔBDC is not defined.

If the question had been

What is the maximum area of ABCD, then we can say BC=CD=8,and hence solve the problem, area = 8*8=64.

As it is, I think information is still missing.
