Mr. Fleep had a new flying disk design. He made some calculations and decided if he could make a flying disk that had a perimeter exactly 4 times the diameter that it would be more aerodynamically stable than a "standard" flying disk and thus fly further. Is this design possible? Why or why not?

I do not believe so, because in order to get the perimeter, you multiply the diameter by pi, and that would not ever give you a perimeter that is four times the diameter, because pi is 3.14
