exercises in introduction to organic chemistry book #16

In this problem, it asks to name the compound. I am pretty sure that is has an isopropyl and dimethyl attached to a cyclohexane, but I'm not sure how to order the name alphabetically. Is iso- a part of the alphabetical naming process or is the propyl? Does this correspond when using tert- as well?

When the prefix iso- or neo- is present, it is used as part of the alphabetical ordering. On the other hand, when tert- or sec- comes before butyl, the butyl portion is used for alphabetical ordering.
