Don't know about what others think but I shall approach this problem using the property of isosceles triangles.
The two equal sides will have the same measure in angles too.
Since DA=DC, hence angle DAC must be 50. Similarly, angle ABD must be 30. Thus, angle BDA=180-60 or 120 and angle ADC=180-100=80.
Angle BDC is 120+80=200.
Also, since DB=DC, hence angle DBC= angle DCB and angle BDC=360-200=160.
160+2x=180, therefore x=10.
Hope that helps.

Yes. Property of isosceles triangle and the sum of the internal angles of a triangle.

50 + 50 + 30 + 30 + x + x = 180

x = 10
