The perimeter of the semi-circle is half the circumference plus the diameter.

In this case, we have three as the radius, so the diameter is 6 inches long, and the perimeter around the arc is \(\frac{2\pi*3}{2}=3\pi.\) Thus, the answer is \(\boxed{3\pi+6}.\)

Semi-circle perimeter =   pi * radius   =

 

pi * 3 =

 

3 pi  cm

 

EDIT....see tertre's answer below.....mine is flawed!!!

Ah....thanks, Tetre.....I always forget that they want the perimeter of the whole sector....not just the "curved" part
