The three intersecting circles shown represent a Venn diagram. The red represents all of the students taking math, the yellow circle represents all of the students taking science, and the green circle represents all of the students taking English. Fifty-six students are taking either math, science, or English. 32 of the students are taking only two of the subjects, and 6 are taking only one subject. 38 students are taking math, 40 are taking science, and 46 are taking English. There are 2 students only taking math and the same number of students only taking science as there are only taking English.

How many students can possibly be taking math and English, science and English, and math and science? Use a table to justify your findings.
