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

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.
