Assuming the students in Annabelle's class are between 6 and 14 years old, the answer is 9.


Out of every 10 students, 3 have a magazine subscription.

There are three times as many students as this in Annabelle's class, so the answer is calculated by multiplying 3 by 3.

It is assuming that the students in Annabelle's class fit that age.
