I believe this makes the 3-4-5 triangle, making the hypotenuse 15 cm

but just in case this is wrong, c^2 = sqrt(a^2 +b^2)

c^2 = sqrt(81+144)= sqrt(225)= 15

The diameter of a rectangle is the same as its diagonal (angle in a semicircle is a right angle).

If the lengths of the sides of the rectangle are known, a simple application of Pythagoras's theorem given the measure of the diagonal.
