Yes, the answer is still 9. The parenthesis part of PEMDAS means an operation within parenthesis. Since only the 3 is inside the () and no operation, that step is done. No exponents, so that is skipped. The multiplication is outside the (), and since multiplication and division have equal precedence, you do them in the order they occur from left to right.
