The diagonal will be the hypotenuse of a right triangle...so..its length is

√ [ 22^2 + 6^2 ] =

√ [ 484 + 36 ] =

√ 520 ≈

22.8 ft

.8 of 1 foot = .8 * 12 inches = 9.6 in

So...the length is ≈ 22ft 9.6 in

To find the number of inches, take the decimal portion of the measurement and multiply by 12.
