$1$

#### Explanation:

There is only one term, but in the bracket there are different operations.
WE need to divide 11 by the answer to the whole bracket,
In the bracket do the stronger divide before the weaker add.

$\textcolor{m a \ge n t a}{11} \div \left(8 + \textcolor{red}{9 \div 3}\right)$

=$\textcolor{m a \ge n t a}{11} \div \left(8 + \textcolor{red}{3}\right)$

=$\textcolor{m a \ge n t a}{11} \div \textcolor{b l u e}{11}$

=$1$
