Well the area of the sticker his length*height and they give you height. So the length is 438/12 which equals 36.5. Since the label fits once without overlap around the bottle 36.5 is the circumference of the bottle. The circumference of a circle is equal to 2pi*r. So to find r divide 36.5 by 2pi. This gives you 5.809 cm. The nearest tenth makes it 5.8 cm.

That makes sense thank you and when you mean 438/12= 36.5 did you convert it to inches?

Nope. I didn't mess with the units at all because I assumed all the numbers were in cm.
