Just draw a Venn diagram. There are 3 regions, we'll call them m,s,r, with overlapping regions labeled, ms,mr,rs,mrs.
Now start filling them in, from the inside out
mrs = 3
rs = 73 = 4
mr = 103 = 7
ms = 133 = 10
m = 34(3+7+10) = 21
r = 20(3+4+7) = 6
s = 27(3+4+10) = 10
Now you can answer the questions
