Jim has put a fence along the side AC of the triangular patch of land shown below.

A right angle triangle ABC is shown having length of one leg equal to 6 meters. The measure of angle ABC is 90 degrees. A fence is shown on the hypotenuse of the triangle. The length of the fence is 10m, the same as that of the hypotenuse.

What is the length of side AB?
