Andrew is considering building a clubhouse in the shape of a rectangle. His sketch of the clubhouse is.... (its a drawing of a rectangle with 8 ft at the top and 4 ft on the left end)What would the area of the clobhouse be? I answer 24 ft.
The next question asked ....
on one wall of the clubhouse,Andrwe wants to cut a large circular opening to be a window. The circle radiusis 2 ft. What will the circle circumference be? (This is what i don't understand) Please help me!!

cirsumference of a circle equals 2*pie*radius

If the clubhouse is 8 feet by 4 feet, the area wouldn't be 24 feet.
8 * 4 = ?? sq. feet
To find the circumference, multiply Pi times the diameter.
C = 3.14 * 4
C = ??

by multiplying 8 by 4 is 32ft?
C = 1256
if this is the right answer, I still confused, please help me understand

Yes. The area of the clubhouse is 32 square feet.
But you're way off on the circumference. Where does the decimal point go?

C= 12.56

Right. The circumference of the circle is 12.56 feet.
