    Step-by-step explanation:

    Let the length of the road be x miles.

     \therefore \:  50\% of \: x = \frac{3}{4}  \\  \\  \therefore \:   \frac{50}{100}  \times x = \frac{3}{4}  \\  \\   \therefore \:  x =  \frac{3}{4}  \times  \frac{100}{50}  \\  \\  \therefore \:  x =  \frac{3}{4}  \times 2 \\  \\  \therefore \:  x =  1.5 \\

    Hence length of the road = 1.5 miles.
