In quadrilateral $\displaystyle ABCD,$ $\displaystyle m \angle DAC= m\angle DBC$ and $\displaystyle \frac{[ADB]}{[ABC]}=\frac12.$ If $\displaystyle AD=4,$ $\displaystyle BC=6$, $\displaystyle BO=1,$ and the area of $\displaystyle ABCD$ is $\displaystyle \frac{a\sqrt{b}}{c},$ where $\displaystyle a,b,c$ are relatively prime positive integers, find $\displaystyle a+b+c.$

Note*: $\displaystyle[ABC]$ and $\displaystyle[ADB]$ refer to the areas of triangles $\displaystyle ABC$ and $\displaystyle ADB.$
