Yes 28...

The outer perimeter is 36 which means we have 9 inch for each outer side...

We also know that frame occupies 1 inch on each side...

What i did was to draw a square and add a perpendicular line (which eqauls 1 inch) towards the center on each side of the square... After that the answer becomes obvious... We have to deduct 2 inch from the length of the outer side...

7+7+7+7=28
