| First, let’s bring all units of measurement to a single one.

3 m = 300 cm.

Next, we write down the formula for finding the perimeter of a rectangle:

P = 2a + 2b, where a – length, b – width.

Let us find the perimeter of the rectangle if the length and width are known by the problem statement:

P = 2 * 300 + 2 * 1 = 600 + 2 = 602 cm.

Answer: The perimeter of the rectangle is 602 cm.
