Monitor question bit confused

Hi all I just recently bought a monitor, a samsung syncmaster SA350 24 inch LCD. Yes its a fine monitor but having just measured it 24 inches it isnt, the screen measures 21 inches and in total with the bezel edges it makes only 22.5 inches. So i checked the box and it says a SA350 24 inch monitor - except it's not. Am i missing something here? :/ PS. i dont think my tape measure is wrong

Did you measure it Diagonally, Bottom Left to Top Right?

no i didnt, and thats exactly the answer i needed before i found myself back in the shop making a total idiot of myself! :). Thank you it simply didnt occur to me the measurement for monitors was on the diagonal, i presumed it was the width. Thank you Lazarus the 2nd
