In Triangle DCB(right-angled triangle), \(DB^2 = (4\sqrt{2})^2 + (4\sqrt{2})^2 = 64\) -> DB = \(\sqrt{64} = 8\)

Triangles DXA and AXB are similar(SAS), therefore DX = XB = 4

In Triangle DXA, Side \(AX = \sqrt{5^2 - 4^2} = \sqrt{25 - 16} = \sqrt{9} = 3\)
In Triangle DXC, Side \(XC = \sqrt{(4\sqrt2)^2 - 4^2} = \sqrt{16} = 4\)

Therefore, \(AC = AX + XC = 3+4\) = 7(Option A)
