Hello, could you please help me with a very simple thing, but I can't do it, I've looked for several tutorials, but I haven't found anything that could help me.
I need to create some circles in these formats, and I don't have much experience with Ilustration, if you can help me I'll be grateful.

You can try a thick dashed stroke with a variable width profile:

Like this (and in the end you can always use Object > Path > Outline Stroke to remove one of the dashes).

Thank you very much for the tips I managed to do, but there were some scratches between one square and another, in fact I created a circle and used your suggestion. I want those little scratches shown in the red arrow not to show up.
I would like this circle to have exactly 16 squares and not 22 I couldn't find where I can change these values.

You can change the amount of dashes by varying the Dash, Gap and Weight of the stroke.

I cannot replicate the scratches that you mentioned, is it a single path?

Depending on the desired result, you can use an artbrush, for example. Or you can use pathfinder operations with two circles and a star.

Or construct it from scratch (there are many ways to get there) :

 

Your image in the background  +  2 circles and 1 star

circle_01.png

fill the inner circle and the star with black (and no stroke)

cut both and

paste in place in the opacity mask of the outer circle (which I filled with blue)

circle_02.png

the "same" as your own example image
