Solving problems using Venn Diagrams

Hello, I'm in 7th grade and am taking an algebra course. Currently my class and I are working on solving problems using Venn diagrams, however I don't understand the concept very well. I would like if someone mathematically experienced in this field may help me understand this, and to SIMPLY explain it because I'm a BIG over thinker. Thanks!
