what to do with parenthesis
If a pattern row reads as follows: K1, (yo, k1) 3 times, *yo, DVC, (yo, k1) 7 times, rep from *6 times, yo, DVC, (yo, k1) 4 times -113 sts. Do you repeat only what is in the parenthesis that amount of times? and then repeat from the * that amount of times?

Yes. A stitch sequence in () will have the number of times you do it afterward. And what's between the *s will also be repeated, either a set number or times or all the way across the row.. So in your example, the row is - K1, yo, k1, yo, k1, yo, k1; *yo DVC yo, k1, yo, k1, yo, k1, yo, k1, yo, k1, yo, k1, yo, k1, repeat from * 6 times, then finish up yo, DVC, yo, k1, yo, k1, yo, k1, yo, k1.
