    3^2 Comes first. Then multiply that by 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.
