Explanation:

Remember that PEMDAS:

List item
 List item
 Parenthesis
 Exponents
 Multiplication
 Division
 Addition
 Subtraction
*Remember that steps 3/4 can happen in either order depending on what appear first when reading the equation from left to right. This same rule applies with steps 5/6 as well *
is the necessary order of operations to solve all equations.
 Solving the Equation:
 to begin, rewrite the problem, and identify the first step according to PEMDAS
 The first letter of PEMDAS, P stands for parenthesis, which are present
 So, we begin by solving inside the parenthesis
 Inside the parenthesis, we restart with PEMDAS: Since there are no parenthesis or exponents INSIDE the parenthesis, we move on to multiplication  3 x 3 = 9  so the equation should look like this:
 To finish the parenthesis, we move down PEMDAS  since there is no more multiplication or division, we can add 
 1 + 9 = 10  so the parenthesis are removed because they have been simplified, and the equation should look like this:
 Then, we return to the beginning of PEMDAS  since there are no more parenthesis, we can move on to the exponent that is present.
#10^2=100#  so, the number 100 can fill the place of#10^2# in the equation
 Finally, we can move on to the next part of PEMDAS  since there is no more multiplication or division, we can move on addition and subtraction
