The relation C'D = ϒCD is correct. But C'D is the uncontracted length and CD is the contracted length.I also know that C'D = ϒCD, which is the contracted length is equal to the uncontracted length times gamma.

I know that gamma is equal to √(¾) is is √(3)/2 for this problem.

Gamma is not equal to ##\sqrt{1-v^2/c^2}##. Gamma is ##\large \frac{1}{\sqrt{1-v^2/c^2}}##

Please try again.
