Given the information in the problem:

1. Since Amanda sells 5 magazines per week, in 24 weeks Amanda would be able to sell:

5 x 24 = **120 magazines**.

2. If each magazine costs $25, then 120 magazines would give a total sale of:

120 x $25 = **$3000 **

3. Since Amanda earns 15% of her sales, then she would earn:

$3000 X .15 = **$450** where 15% = 15/100 = .15

Alright let's take this step by step. First lets find out how much Amanda makes for selling a single subscription. We can do that as follows:

$25 * .15 = $3.75 (15% = 15/100 = .15)

Next she sells 5 subscriptions each week. Each week she earns:

$3.75 * 5 = $18.75

Finally she will do this for 24 weeks:

$18.75 * 24 = $450
