#### Solution

$\text{ We know that } n\left( A \cup B \right) = n\left( A \right) + n\left( B \right) - n\left( A \cap B \right)$
$n\left( A \cup B \right) \text{ is minimum when } n\left( A \cap B \right) \text{ is maximum }$
$so, n\left( A \cap B \right) = 3$
$\text{ Hence }, n\left( A \cup B \right) = n\left( A \right) + n\left( B \right) - n\left( A \cap B \right)$
$= 3 + 6 - 3$
$= 6$
