    Could you write out how this looks. the division sign doesn't really indicate where the equation is divided.

    First try to just put in the value pi/4 and decide if the function is defined in that point

    you'll get -3sqrt(2)

    You see that sin pi/4- cos pi/4 equals zero so the function is undefined at pi/4 so what you want to do is to simplify the function

    you can turn your denominator into\[(3-3(\frac{ cosx }{ sinx })\] then split the numerator into two different fractions\[\frac{ 3 }{ sinx-cosx } - \frac{ \frac{ sinx }{ cosx } }{ sinx-cosx }\]
