Hi Didi;
I am assuming that the window is a perfect square.
x=one side
x2=49
+/-x=√49
+/-x=7
x=7 or -7, -7 is not a measurement.
x=7
You asked about "roots".  We can do this more elaborately...
x2-49=0
(x+7)(x-7)=0
Either parenthetical equation must equal zero.
x+7=0
x=-7, not applicable.
x-7=0
x=7
