$-2.1$

#### Work Step by Step

Using the order of operations and the definition of absolute value, the given expression, $(|2.7-3|+3^2-|-3|)\div(-3) ,$ is equivalent to \begin{array}{l}\require{cancel} (|2.7-3|+3^2-|-3|)\div(-3) \\\\= (|2.7-3|+9-|-3|)\div(-3) \\\\= (|-0.3|+9-|-3|)\div(-3) \\\\= (0.3+9-(3))\div(-3) \\\\= (0.3+9-3)\div(-3) \\\\= (6.3)\div(-3) \\\\= -2.1 .\end{array}
