    Consider right triangle with two congruent legs of 7 meters each and unknown hypotenuse.

    By the Pythagorean theorem,

    \text{Hypotenuse}^2=\text{First leg}^2+\text{Second leg}^2.

    Thus,

    \text{Hypotenuse}^2=7^2+7^2=49+49=98,\\ \\\text{Hypotenuse}=\sqrt{98}\approx 10\ m.

    Answer: 10 m
