Problem #1203

 1203 In $\triangle ABC$, we have $AC = BC = 7$ and $AB = 2$. Suppose that $D$ is a point on line $AB$ such that $B$ lies between $A$ and $D$ and $CD = 8$. What is $BD$? $\mathrm{(A)} 3 \qquad \mathrm{(B)} 2\sqrt{3} \qquad \mathrm{(C)} 4 \qquad \mathrm{(D)} 5 \qquad \mathrm{(E)} 4\sqrt{2}$ This problem is copyrighted by the American Mathematics Competitions.
