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 = 7-3 = 4

mr = 10-3 = 7

ms = 13-3 = 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
