A wire is in the shape of a rectangle. Its length is 40 cm and breadth is 22 cm. If the same wire is rebent in the shape of a square, what will be the measure of each side. Also find which shape encloses more area?

Perimeter of rectangle = Perimeter of square

2 (Length + Breadth) = 4 * Side

2 (40 + 22) = 4 * Side

2 * 62 = 4 * Side

Side == 31 cm

Area of rectangle = 40 * 22 = 880 cm^{2}

Area of square = (Side)^{2} = 31 * 31 = 961 cm^{2}

Therefore, the square-shaped wire encloses more area.
