Ans:
Since both lines are parallel & tangent to the circle. Then distance between these two lines must be the diameter of the circle.
Lines:
3x - 4y + 4 = 0
3x - 4y - \frac{7}{2} = 0
Diameter ‘d’:
d = \frac{|4-(-\frac{7}{2})|}{\sqrt{(3)^{2}}+(-4)^{2}} = \frac{\frac{15}{2}}{5} = \frac{3}{2}
Radius:
\frac{3}{4}
