    Answer: x = 7.07

    Step-by-step explanation:

    Using Pythagoras theorem , since it is a right angled triangle ,

    side 1 = 10cm

    side 2 = x cm

    side 3 = x cm

    Pythagoras theorem  states that the area of the square whose side is the hypotenuse is equal to the sum of the areas of the squares on the other two sides. That is

    10^{2}=x^{2}  +x^{2}

    100 = 2x^{2}

    divide through by 2 , we have

    50 = x^{2}

    find the square root of both sides

    x = \sqrt{50}

    x = 7.07
