$\displaystyle 3^2$ Comes first. Then multiply that by $\displaystyle 11$.

1) P - Parentheses

2) E - Exponents (In this case we have one)

3/4) M - Multiplication (Left to right, shares precedence with division)

3/4) D - Division (Left to right, shares precedence with multiplication)

5/6) A - Addition (Left to right, shares precedence with subtraction)

5/6) S - Subtraction (Left to right, shares precedence with addition)

Then the rest. :D
