Answer:

#12pi# inches or about #37.699# inches

Here's how I did it:

Explanation:

The formula for the circumference of a circle is #2pir#.

We know that the radius is #6# inches, so we can plug that into the formula:
#2pi(6)#

Now multiply the #2# with the #6#:
#12pi# inches or about #37.699# inches (when we multiply the #12# with #pi#)

Hope this helps!
