To find the total number of students who are in the math club or the science club (or both) at Annville Junior High School, we can follow these steps:

1. There are 3 students in the math club.

2. 3 students are members of both the math and science clubs.

3. The number of students in the science club is twice the number in the math club. Given this information, we can calculate the number of students in the science club: - Number of students in the math club: 3 - Number of students in the science club = 2 number in the math club = 2 3 = 6 Next, we find the total number of students who are in the math club or the science club (or both) using the principle of inclusion-exclusion: Total students = Number in math club + Number in science club - Number in both clubs Substitute the values we found: Total students = 3 + 6 - 3 = 6

Therefore, the total number of students who are in the math club or the science club (or both) is 6.
