Okay, let's go for basics... If you have an 8cm wire, bent into a square, how long would one side be?

first i have to put the formula for area of circle pir^2= 38.5 from here i got value of r = 7/2

You got an exact fraction? I find this hard to believe...

then i used circumference of a circle = 2 *pi *r=2*pi*(7/2)=22cm now, circumference of a cirlce = perimeter of a wire=22cm

Well, I'll vouch for you, on the grounds that you understand that that's just an approximation (as if you can get an exact answer with pi involved, but whatever...)
