    Please tell us exactly what you did and how you got those two answers. You appear to be saying that the string is going around the circumference of the circle. Is that correct? Do you know a formula for the circumference of a circle?

    (If the string is on the circumference of the circle, neither 16 nor 8 is even close to the correct answer.)

    Length of string required is same as perimeter of circle
    = 2πr
    = 2 3.14 4 = 25.12 inch
