HI,
We can use the formula :R= \rho L/A , where, R is resistance of the wire, L its length, A its cross-sectional area and \rho [rho] is the resistivity of the wire.
 From the data given, R=26 \OmegaL=2m  and    A=\pi[0.3*10^{-3}]^{2} m^{}2    i.e, A= 9*10^{-8}\pi m^{2}
 
\rho =RA/L  \Rightarrow \rho = 26 * 9*10^{-8}\pi /2
\therefore \rho = 367.38 * 10^{-8} \Omega m
or \rho = 3.674 * 10^{-6} \Omega m
 
Hope it helps, thanks..
