I'm having problems with this question, to tell you the truth I don't understand the problem.
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!!

Math 
Riley,
cirsumference of a circle equals 2*pie*radius

Math 
Ms. Sue,
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 = ?? 
Math 
Lemar,
by multiplying 8 by 4 is 32ft?
C = 1256
if this is the right answer, I still confused, please help me understand 
Math 
Ms. Sue,
Yes. The area of the clubhouse is 32 square feet.
But you're way off on the circumference. Where does the decimal point go? 
Math 
Lemar,
C= 12.56

Math 
Ms. Sue,
Right. The circumference of the circle is 12.56 feet.
