  1. Becomes real simple if you use Venn diagrams
    I placed x in the intersection of M, I, and S. ( x will be the solution to your question)
    I filled in the following:

    10% take STATS and MATHS but not IT
    5% take IT and MATHS but not STAT
    20% take only MATHS

    I then used: 45% of all students take MATHS
    to form the equation
    x+10+5+20 = 45
    x = 10
