What is the question? Is it rearrange this to something like r= some expression possibly in terms of 21 and pi ...?

Divide both sides by $\displaystyle \pi$ to get:

$\displaystyle r^2=\frac{21}{\pi}$

Now take the sqruare root (we want the positive root because $\displaystyle r$ is presumably the radius of a circle):

$\displaystyle r=\sqrt{\frac{21}{\pi}}$
