**Steve**, Tuesday, July 31, 2012 at 6:37pmradius = 2pi, so diameter = 4pi

circle diameter is the length of the side of the square.

perimeter = 4*4pi = 16pi

**Ms. Sue**, Tuesday, July 31, 2012 at 8:00pmIsn't the diagonal of the square the same as the diameter of the circle?

**Reiny**, Tuesday, July 31, 2012 at 8:01pmSo the diagonal of the square is 4π

let each side of square be x

x^2 + x^2 = 16π^2

2x^2 = 16π^2

x^2 = 8π^2

x = π√8

4x = 4π√8

= 8√2 π
