This is a word problem that involves addition and subtraction of money. To solve it, you need to follow these steps1:

Take note of the given information. In this case, it is that Annie bought three buns for 9 cents and now has 53 cents in her wallet.
Write an equation that represents the situation. In this case, it is x - 9 = 53, where x is the amount of cents Annie had before buying the buns.
Solve the equation for x. In this case, it is x = 53 + 9, which is x = 62.
Check your answer by plugging it back into the equation. In this case, it is 62 - 9 = 53, which is true.
Write your answer in a complete sentence. In this case, it is Annie had 62 cents in her wallet before buying the buns.
