In quadrilateral $ABCD$, diagonal $\overline{AC}$ bisects both $\angle BAD$ and $\angle BCD$. If $AB=15$ and $BC=13$, find the perimeter of $ABCD$.


Notice that since $\overline{AC}$ bisects a pair of opposite angles in quadrilateral $ABCD$, we can distinguish this quadrilateral as a kite.

$\linebreak$ With this information, we have that $\overline{AD}=\overline{AB}=15$ and $\overline{CD}=\overline{BC}=13$.

Therefore, the perimeter is \[15+15+13+13=\boxed{56}\] $\square$
