finding a unitvector that gives the maximum directional derivative of a vectorfield

This is a question that I don't really know if I did it right

A Vectorfield is given, and a Point. It's gradient is 9i+12j+3k. It will be biggest at when there is no angle, so cos(0)

Is the formula $$\left(\frac{\vec v}{|v|}\right)=\left(\frac{\|gradf|}{gradf}\right)$$ correct? And if so, I get a scalar devided by a vector, I'm not sure how to proceed
