    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
