If the wire is bent into the shape of a square and the area is 81 $$cm^2$$
the side of the square is 9 cm. Hence, the perimeter is 4*side = 36 cm

This wire is not bent to form a semicircle which can be given by pi*r + 2*r(where r is the radius of the semicircle)

r(pi + 2) = 36 where pi = $$\frac{22}{7}$$

Therefore, r ($$\frac{36}{7}$$) = 36 => r = 7

The area of the semicircle is $$\frac{1}{2}*pi*r^2 = \frac{1}{2}*\frac{22}{7}*7*7 = 77 cm^2$$(Option C)
