Answer

46.96 centimeters.

Explanation

Noirin's daughter's knit hat will have a circumference of 46.96 centimeters.

0.8=\dfrac {\text{scaled}}{58.7}

58.7(0.8)=\left(\dfrac {\text{scaled}}{58.7}\right)58.7

46.96=\text{scaled}

0.8=\dfrac {\text{scaled}}{58.7}

58.7(0.8)=\left(\dfrac {\text{scaled}}{58.7}\right)58.7

46.96=\text{scaled}
