If possible, I'd love some explanation/clarification for the answers as well so I can understand it better... thanks!

Well, I will help with the first one. Then you better try to use a similar approach on the rest

y = -3 sin pi x/ cos pi x

this repeats when pi x = pi

or period = 1 pi

It gets undefined when cos pi x = 0

or pi x = pi/2 which is x = 1/2

then pi x = 3 pi/2 which is x = 3/2
