#### Answer

$$c=25.0m$$

#### Work Step by Step

This is a right triangle. This means we can use the Pythagorean Theorem to find the length of the hypotenuse. The formula is $c=\sqrt (a^{2}+b^{2})$ In this case, $a=24.0m$ $b=7.0m$ So, $c=\sqrt (24^{2}+7^{2})$ $c=\sqrt (576+49)$ $c=\sqrt 625$ $c=25.0m$
