Resistance=constant*Length/diameter^2

Two ways you can work this:

1) In the equation, solve for the constant (you have resistance 9 ohms, Length 50, and diameter .05). Then use that constant in the equation to solve for the new conditions,

2) Notice the length is the same, however...

Resistance1=constant*Length1/diameter1^2

and

Resistance2=constant*Length2/diameter2^2

now dividing the second equation by the first, and noting that the length1 and length 2 are the same..

Resistance2/resistance1=(diameter2/diameter1)^2

or resistance2=resistance1(diameter2/diameter1)^2
