Circumference = Diameter time Pi (3.1416)

Insert your circumference value and solve for the diameter.

I hope this helps. Thanks for asking.

To find the circumference of a circle, multiply pi times the diameter.

C = pi * d

50 = 3.14 * d

50/3.14 = d

? = d

If you post your answer, we'll be glad to check it.
