    The length of the diagonal of the frame equal 17 inches

    Step-by-step explanation:

    The diagonal dividing the rectangle as made the rectangle 2 triangles

    So according to Pythagoras Theorem,

    Hypothenus² = opposite² + adjacent²

    The diagonal lent is the Hypothenus.

    so the two other sides are taking as opposite and adjacent respectively

    so taking h as hypothenus,

    h² = 15² + 8²

    h² = 225 + 64

    h² = 289

    h = √289

    h = 17
