    ∩ means elements which are "common" to those sets.

    ∩ is called the intersection. Think of it as the center of a venn diagram.

    there are no common integers that will fit within bity of these sets that is why i picked it but my teacher marked it wrong :/

    yeah your teacher is just violating the very basic concept of sets
