As you've already realized, you can draw a venn diagram (Who was this 'venn' by the way? I've always wondered that) to help yourself connect the dots.

John Venn was a logician who took the standard Euler Diagrams and improved upon them by overlapping and requiring that the overlap be the Union, and that all elements of the sets be constrained to exist in some area of the diagram.As you've already realized, you can draw a venn diagram (Who was this 'venn' by the way? I've always wondered that) to help yourself connect the dots.

Euler diagrams did not have to overlap, the circles could exist separate from each other. Venn's improvement assisted the logicians with understanding what the Union and disjunctions of sets meant.

Mathematicians then realized their usefulness began using them as well.

Wiki does both okay, but not great:
