Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Well 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.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1That makes sense thank you and when you mean 438/12= 36.5 did you convert it to inches?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Nope. I didn't mess with the units at all because I assumed all the numbers were in cm.
