    Ellipse --> What relation represents the shaded region if the vertices integ coordina

    I am given an ellipse graph with a major of axis that is 6 units wide and a minor axis 4 units wide. (represented graphically and I made it into words)

    The question asks:
    "What relation represents the shaded region if the vertices have integral coordinates?"

    I do not understand what integral coordinates means and what the question is asking in the first place.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated!
    Thanks in advance!

    integral coordinates just means that the vertices' x and y coordinates are integers.

    can't answer the second question w/o knowing what the graph and shaded region look like.
