**Ms. Sue**, Tuesday, April 21, 2009 at 6:48pmIf 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 = ??

**Ms. Sue**, Tuesday, April 21, 2009 at 7:23pmYes. The area of the clubhouse is 32 square feet.

But you're way off on the circumference. Where does the decimal point go?
