think of "Please Excuse My Dear Aunt Sally"
P is for paranthesis first
E is for exponents
M and D are for multiply and divide, they go in order as whatever comes first from left to right whether its multiply or divide
A and S are for adding and subtracting. same as with multiply and divide they go in the order they appear on the problem
from left to right

I know that I just don't know how to
break it down or the answer.
must be beyond me the teacher gave it
to us for homework for extra credit
and we never did anything like it
before

Like Evan said you have to do it in the order above. Start with the parenthesis and work from there. Just try it. We can check it for you.
