The simultaneous conditions x - y <= 6, x + y <= 6, and x >= 0 define a region R. What is the area of region R? How many lattice points are in region r? How many lattic points lie on the boundary of R ? What if 6 is replaced by 100?

See  the  graph  here  :  https://www.desmos.com/calculator/qzfidyzqfw

We  have  two  triangles  whose  base and  height   =  6....so...the  area =   6 * 6    = 36

By Pick's Theorem

Area =   Number of interior lattice points  +  Number  of lattice points on the  boundary/2   - 1

The  number of lattice points on the  boundary  =    1 + 6  + 6 +  11  =   24

So

36 =   I  +  24 /2    -  1

36  = I  +  12 -  1

36 = I  + 11

I =  25  =  25 interior lattice points

If  6 is replaced  by 100.....the  area =   100^2 =  10000

The  number of lattice points on the  boundary =  1 + 100 + 100 + 199 = 400

By Pick's Theorem

10000  =  I   +  400/2  - 1

10000 = I  + 200 - 1

10000 =  I  +  199

I  =   9801   lattice points in the  interior
