Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

Using Pythagoras theorem the base diagonal is given by square root of (15 squared + 20 squared)

base diagonal will therefore be equal to square root of (225+400) =25 inches

taking the base diagonal and the height of the box and applying Pythagoras theorem we have,

space diagonal= square root of (25squared + 60 squared) = 65 inches

therefore your answer is 65 inches

Please let me know if you need any clarification. I'm always happy to answer your questions.
