Note: To find the circumference you could

- All the ratios of the circumference to the diameter should be close to the same number. If not, double check your measurements. What special number is equal to the ratio of the circumference to the diameter?
- Do you think that this ratio is the same if the circles are measured in miles rather than centimeters or inches?
