A = P(1+r/n)^nt
P=3800
r=5.4
t=8

n is the number of times that interest is compounded per year.  So in your case this is 12 because the question states that interest is compounded monthly.

It looks like different the way it solve above.

A = P(1+r/n)^nt
P=3800
r=5.4
t=8
n=12

A=3800(1+5.4/12)12*8

t is not 8 - that would be 8 years.  For 8 months it is 8/12 or 0.666667
r is not 5.4 - that would be 540%.  For 5.4% it is 0.054

So you get:
A=3800(1+0.054/12)^(12*0.666667)
A=3800(1.0045)^(8)
A=3800(1.036572)
A=3938.83
