    You just need to use Pythagorean theorem. a^2 + b^2 = c^2 a and b are sides of the triangle and c is the hypotenuse. since your two sides are the same it becomes x^2 + x^2 = 52^2 Now solve for x.

    \[a^2+b^2=c^2\] by pythagoras theorem

    Therefore,\[x^2+x^2=52mm\]

    now,\[2x^2=52mm\]

    now,\[x^2=52/2\] i.e.,\[x^2=26\] therefore,\[x=\sqrt{26}\]
