It is given that the radius of the circle is 4 cm

We know that circumference of circle = $2 \pi r$

$\Rightarrow 2 \pi r = 2 \times 3.14 \times 4 = 25.12 \ cm$

And perimeter of the square is $= 4a$

$\Rightarrow 4a = 4 \times 4 = 16 \ cm$

Length of cord left is $= 25.12 - 16 = 9.12 \ cm$

Therefore, Length of cord left is  $9.12 \ cm$
