Default HP w2207h question

i have a question about the HP w2207h.

the HP website says:

Display size 22-inch (55.9 cm) diagonal and viewable image

and

Dimensions H x W x D, including base:

18.9 x 20.5 x 11.3 inches (48.1 x 52.3 x 28.9 cm)

how is 20.5 inches 22 inches?

i'm a bit confused.

All screens are measured diagonally. This measurement will be larger than the width and height of the monitor.

Just think of right triangles from way back in like 7th grade lol.
Hypotenuse is longer than the legs or something like that.

'a squared' + 'b squared' = 'c squared'

The dimensions are in height x width x depth.
The 20.5 inches is the measure from left to right
The inches of a monitor are measured diagonally.
If you calculated the screen using pythagorus's theorum. You would come out with 22 inches.
