To give a more detailed explanation, since point X is an interior point in rectangle ABCD, and since BX = CX, then triangle BCX is an isosceles triangle. Since ABCD is a rectangle, point X must lie on the line of symmetry of the perpendicular bisector of BC. Thus, ADX is also an isosceles triangle where AX = DX. Because AX = 1, then DX must also be equal to 1.

Therefore, **DX = 1. **
