Thank you very much! you star! and yes roughly a minute to read the question, work out what do to and write it all down seems pretty mad!
As far as the exam goes, if you actually work through rearranging the formula, it's going to take longer than necessary.

Looking at the original equation, your penultimate step is going to have W+w/3 by itself, so you're going to end up with something -w/3.

That eliminates C, and D.

Then if you look what happens to pi; you're squaring the eqn, and you have pi squared over pi, leaving you with just pi. It flips to the denominator when you move it over, although more obviously, there is no root(pi), hence B is eliminated, leaving A.
