Answer:

#8#

Explanation:

Use the formula for the area of a circle:

#A=pir^2#

Here, the area is #16pi#:

#16pi=pir^2#

Divide both sides by #pi#:

#16=r^2#

Take the square root of both sides:

#sqrt16=sqrt(r^2)#

#4=r#

Since the radius of the circle is #4#, the diameter is twice that:

#d=4xx2=8#
