Expert Answer:

When the wire of resistance R is cut into 3 equal pieces then each piece will consist of resistance 
So when these three equal pieces are connected in parallel then the equivalent resistance is
Then let us take wire to be 1 m length and cross section area be 1meter square then resistivity is
