If this is an isosceles triangle, then the left side (12.5 ft) = the right side (0.25x ft).  Set them equal to each other to solve:

12.5 = 0.25x (this would be the equation since both sides are equal to each other - definition of isosceles triangle that two sides are equal)

12.5/0.25 = 0.25/0.25x (divide both sides by 0.25 to solve for x)

50 = x
