not knowing the diameter of the earth:

circumference of a sphere is C=2*PI*r

adding the height of the person the circumference would be 2*PI*(r+6)

wanting the difference between the two you know would have

2*PI(r+6)-2*PI*r

which gets reduced to 12PI

if you need it in power 12 *3.14 = 37.68 = 3.78 x 10^1

depending on the value used for pi answer may be slightly different.
