For a value like "32+-0.25 meters" you multiply the +- value by two to represent the total range in uncertainty of the value. The same logic applies if you are given the radius as a possible range of position for an electron to occupy. Since you want to represent the total range of uncertainty, you multiply the radius by two to find the total uncertainty; this value is also the diameter.
