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

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.

Radius of circle = 8 - 4 = 4

Circumference = $$2πr$$

$$2*4*π$$

$$8π$$
