The circumference of the circle with center C = 2π r (radius)

But what is r? It is distance between (5, 4) and (5,8)=4

Hence circumference of the circle with center C = 2*4*π = 8π

Hence D

Distance between two points: $$\sqrt{(x2-x1)^2+(y2-y1)^2} = \sqrt{(5-5)^2+(8-4)^2}=√16=4$$

Diameter: $$radius*2=(4)*2=8$$

Circumference: $$diameter*π=(8)π$$

(D) is the answer.

We don't need to find a distance between two points since both points is on x=5 and "moves" along y coordinate. Just finding the difference between y coordinates is enough to find the radius.

8-4=4 so r equals 4,thus circumference is 2{\pi}*r=2*pi*4=8*pi

Answer (D)

Since there is a straight line through the circle because the two coordinates are (5, 8) and (5, 4), calculate the distance between the two y coordinates: 8 - 4 = 4. Hence 4 is the radius.

The equation for circumference of a circle is 2*pi*radius. Thus 2*pi*4 = 8*pi (Option D).

From the diagram, we see that the radius of circle C is 8 - 4 = 4; thus, the circumference is 2π x 4 = 8π.

Answer: D

Radius of circle = 8 - 4 = 4

Circumference = $$2πr$$

$$2*4*π$$

$$8π$$

(D)
